Directions

  1. Preheat grill or grill pan over medium-high. In a small bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon oil with cumin and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Rub tomatoes with flavored oil.
  2. Brush both sides of tortillas with 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill one side of tortilla until puffed and golden, about 2 minutes. Flip tortillas and divide cheese among them. Cook until cheese has melted, 2 minutes; transfer to a platter. Add tomatoes to grill and cook until charred and slightly softened, about 4 minutes.
  3. Toss beans with cilantro, lime juice and remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Top tostadas with arugula, grilled tomatoes and dressed beans. Serve avocado on the side. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper and serve with lime wedges.
