Bean and Cheese Tostadas Recipe

This recipe came about as a combination of a couple recipes. The original I found was from the 100 Days of Real Food website (I love their recipes!), but that had chicken on them and we decided we didn’t want anything with meat in it that night. I did have some refried beans in the pantry, basically a staple around here. So I searched online for bean tostadas and looked at a few different recipes and just made it up as I went!
