Dos Frijoles Tostadas (Two Bean Tostadas)

Well, a couple of weeks ago was Cinco de Mayo, and we certainly channeled the spirit of the Southwest here in A Duo of Chefsland. Pretty much our entire menu for last week consisted of Southwest-inspired food (OK, some of it is Tex-Mex).
And we started out the week with a simple tostada meal inspired by a recipe from Cooking Light. We picked up a few ingredients from some local markets and used some leftovers (queso fresco from the second batch of tamales I cooked; post to come later this week).

Simply make the salsa with avocados, Roma tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro and sea salt and set aside to marinate for a few minutes. While that's marinating, take the black and pinto beans (either canned or rehydrated and cooked) and top on a flour tortilla with queso fresco.
