It’s time to freshen up with a Recipe Redo that’s ready to take on Spring dinner plans! I’m always searching for recipes to tuck away in my recipe box when I’m in a pinch. This one fits the bill with an easy 10 min. prep time. This recipe is just about as easy as a healthy dinner can get – and it’s a crowd pleaser too. Love Tostadas? This one’s for you, too! This weekend, try this recipe for 10-minute Pineapple Black Bean Tostadas. My favorite part? The simple Pineapple Salsa that stacks on last. Yum! Happy Cooking!
