for the chipotle sauce

for the refried beans

for the baked tostadas

for the add-ons

  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1 cup medium cheddar shredded
  • 3 cups shredded lettuce
  • 9 tbsp Taco Bell Sauce I prefer Hot/Mild

Build your Spicy Tostada

  • 1 baked tostada prepared above
  • 1 large dollop refried beans prepared above
  • 1/4 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 tbsp Taco Bell sauce, preferably hot/mild
  • 2 tbsp shredded cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp chipotle sauce prepared above


Make the chipotle sauce

  • In a food processor, add all the ingredients under Chipotle Sauce.
  • Blend. Taste and adjust salt as needed.

Prepare the refried beans

  • Heat up a pot on medium heat, once hot, add oil followed by the remaining onions you chopped up earlier. Saute for about 3 minutes – until the onions are translucent.
  • Dump all the refried pinto beans into the pot.
  • Stir the beans around.
  • Add Taco Bell Mild Sauce (their Hot Sauce works too). Mix.
  • Add taco seasoning.
  • Let the beans heat up. Once hot, turn off the stove. Your beans are ready.

Bake the Tostadas

  • Brush corn tortillas with avocado oil on both sides.
  • Place tortillas in a toaster oven at 400 degrees. Bake for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • And now you have tostadas.

Build your Tostada

  • Spread refried beans over the tostada. Note - use refried pinto beans, I used black beans since I didn't have pinto on hand.
  • Top with shredded lettuce.
  • Now drizzle 1-2 tbsp of Taco Bell sauce, I prefer hot or mild.
  • Top with shredded cheese.
  • Finish it off with chopped tomatoes and a drizzle of Chipotle Sauce.
