Although I am on a fitness journey to accomplish a better version of myself I still love to splurge every once in a while with all of my delicious and finger-licking Mexican food that I grew up eating.


There are things that I cannot live without and so is the case with the simple tostadas that my mom would make for us. They are super simple yet so good. She would simply re-fry beans, spread them on a tostada and sprinkle some fresh cheese on them w/ any kind of sauce or salsa to bring in the spiciness. We all know that us Latinos cannot live without our spicy flavor.

This time as an adult HERDEZ® Instant Refried Beans made it even easier for me to re-create my mom’s traditional recipe of “Tostada de Frijoles”. These tostadas are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner and even as a midday snack they work perfectly fine.


For these tostadas I cooked the Jalapeño flavor, but HERDEZ® Instant Refried Beans come in 3 additional flavors, which are the traditional, queso and chorizo. I cannot wait to taste the chorizo because I am sure they are to die for.


To this day my mom still cooks these tostadas from scratch when I visit her and it transports me to my modest, but fun young years when we would not have fanciest of meals to eat. But these “Tostadas de Frijoles” hold so much sentimental value that I love eating them today. Cooking them made me, not only miss mom, but also be grateful for such a loving upbringing. When I share with her how effortless and time-saving these HERDEZ® Instant Refried Beans are she will be happy too.


The Jalapeno flavor HERDEZ® Instant Refried Beans hold such a strong flavor that you would not know that they are not homemade. They are rich in the spicy flavor that you wouldn’t be able to tell that they came from a package. So next time you are rushing or have little time grab some of these packs at your nearest local grocery store.


I will give you the rundown on how easy it is to cook these HERDEZ® Instant Refried Beans:

  1. Boil 1.5 cups of water.
  2. Toss in the package of HERDEZ® Instant Refried Beans and let them simmer for 5 minutes.
