If you are from New Zealand, England, or Australia, you totally get this. Yup. But I’m still in shock. I feel like this type of childhood “favorite” meal needed a SERIOUS upgrade.

Smashed Mexican Beans on Avocado Toast.
What’s in it? Glad you asked.
We got the gluten free toast and avocado.. obviously.
But then, then we got FULLY LOADED part. The part that bulks up the fiber, protein, healthy fats, nutrients, and flavor pizzaz!
- Mexican Style Pinto Beans
- Tomatillos (you so need to try these if you haven’t yet)
- Cumin – the new SUPER PUMPED Seed. Pumped as in IRON source. Cumin seeds are naturally rich in iron (source). In fact, just One teaspoon of ground cumin contains 1.4 mg of iron. More plant based iron to NOURISH that body!
- Chili Pepper or Red jalapeños (they do exist!). But don’t worry, you can use green ones. No problemo!
- Olive oil to drizzle!
So to make this avocado toast, first you gotta mash those beans with other flavors. I used a food processor so it was better texture.
After you get that perfect mash, you toast your bread, then start the layering process.
Smashed avocado, then mashed Mexican Beans, then the tomatillo, then the tomato, then the cilantro. Then drizzle with a little olive oil or avocado oil. A pinch of extra salt and pepper to season more.

Just to note: As mentioned in the Mexican Style one pot beans recipe, soaking your beans prior to slow cooking will help you DIGEST them better. Easier digestion will also help INCREASE nutrient absorption. Hence all the fully loaded ingredients in on this toast. You’re gonna get more bang for your buck here folks. So load ‘er up!
I also might have added a fried egg on top. You can see the results for that EGG on toast in the Mexican Style Beans Post. Or click HERE ! Ekk, sorry, that total ruins the vegan option. But to each is own, right?
