Black Bean Tostadas are a wonderful creation, starting with a crispy corn tortilla base that is spread with a generous layer of homemade refried beans, spiced and roasted sweet potatoes, crisp shredded lettuce topped with bright pickled red onions, juicy cherry tomatoes, sliced avocados and lime wedges on the side. They can get messy but pack some bitter flavors in every tasty bite. So be sure to prepare your napkins and pour some margaritas or daiquiris
