  • 1/2 cup non cooked black beans
  • 1/2 cup nacho cheese
  • 4 tostada shells
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 Roma tomato, diced
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • Tapatio Bottle Hot Sauce

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
  • 3 tsp vegetable oil


  1. Place Black beans in a pot and cover with 6 cups of water, bring to a boil on high, then Simmer uncovered for 60 minutes to 1 1⁄2 hours until the beans are tender (taste test as you cook) Add a bit of water if necessary to keep the beans covered with water while cooking. Drain the water.
  2. In a small heavy pot, add rice, water, 1 tsp oil and salt.
  3. Boil on high until most of the water evaporates. When the water just skims the top of the rice, reduce to low and cover about 20 minutes.
  4. Shut off flame and keep covered an additional 5 minute.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine chopped cilantro, lime juice, rice and remaining oil and toss until completely mixed.
  6. Heat nacho cheese according to package instructions.
  7. Working one at a time, place black beans in the center of each tortilla. Top with cilantro lime rice, nacho cheese and tostada shell. Add 4-6 drops of Tapatio to your sour cream, mix and spread on an even layer over the tostada shell; top with lettuce, tomato and cheese. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  8. Fold the edges up and over the center. Continue to work your way around the tortilla, folding as tight as possible.
  9. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet. Place wrap seam-side down and cook until the underside is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook wrap on the other side, about 1-2 minutes longer.
