Healthy Black Bean & Chicken Tostada

Healthy Chicken & Black Bean Tostada

This is one of my favorite go-to lunch or dinners when I’m craving Mexican food.  Quesadillas are a college student staple food because they are one of the easiest things to make but they have absolutely no nutritional value.  They are nothing but fat & carbs and they lack protein to keep you full & satisfied.  This healthy tostada is the perfect solution for a quick & healthy Mexican fix!

Ingredients:

+ Chicken

+ Chicken

  • 100% whole wheat tortillas (My favorite are the olive oil whole wheat tortillas from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/8 c. feta cheese
  • 1/4 c. black beans
  • 2 finely chopped romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1/3 part of a large chicken breast
  • 1/4 of an avocado, diced
  • Your favorite salsa
  • Salt & pepper

Directions: 

  1. While microwaving the black beans, saute diced chicken in a pan coated with 1 tsp. olive oil, add  salt & pepper to taste, cook until browned on both sides
  2. Once chicken is done sautéing, remove from pan & set aside with black beans
  3. Saute the tortilla in the pan coated with 1 tsp. olive oil on medium-high
  4. Once one side is browned, flip and top with feta cheese; turn heat down to low

    tip: cover with lid for the cheese to partially melt easier
