  • 1 package (4.5 oz) tostadas (12 tostadas)

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat. Stir in onions; cook about 2 to 3 minutes or until soft. Stir in refried beans. Cook for 2 to 3minutes until hot, stirring occasionally. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes, to keep tostadas from getting too soft.
