      DELICIOUS!! The OJ and seasonings in the refried beans added a huge depth of flavor that worked great together! I'm surprised that there aren't many tostada recipes here on zaar, they are so GOOD! Maybe because the traditional tostada is so basic, how can you screw it up, lol.. anyhow, the seasoned bean dip really set these off! I topped these with Mom's Tostada Sauce which is another 5-star recipe - I HIGHLY recommend it with these tostadas.. Ole', lol..

      Lots of flavor here! I used flour tortillas and pan heated them. I`m not crazy about frying! I did add some corn to the beans. Used 1/2 cup orange juice. Yummy!
