Piled high with seasoned beans and veggies, these tostadas are more assembly than cooking. If you’re inviting your floormates to your room for dinner or a late-night snack, you can get extra fancy and add a dollop of sour cream, fresh cilantro or a dash of hot sauce.
A meal version of the popular dip, this salad is packed with tasty layers such as crisp lettuce, olives, cheese and avocado. Canned black beans add a source of protein without having to cook – for a twist, try mixing them with corn kernels for extra sweetness. You can use corn from the cob or frozen and thawed corn.
