Black Bean and
Goat Cheese Chalupitas


This combination of flavors is a sure winner. The tostados, black beans, and goat cheese can be prepared ahead for last-minute assembly.

Cooking time: 3 to 5 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings


24 tostados, bought or homemade
One 1 pound can refried black beans (see *Note)
4 ounces (1/2 cup) goat cheese,
   preferably with Southwestern flavorings
   added (see *Note)


Preheat the broiler. Place the tostados on a baking sheet. Spread each with a layer of black beans, then the cheese. Place under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes, until lightly bubbled. Serve hot.

To prepare the Southwestern-flavored goat cheese if it is not commercially available, add to the cheese 1 teaspoon ground pure mild red chile, 1 clove garlic, minced, and a pinch of cumin; stir to blend. Cream cheese can be substituted for the goat cheese.

Any leftover black beans can be placed in a moisture-proof bag and frozen for up to 90 days.
