Spicy Sweet Potato Avocado Tostadas

Ingredients for the salsa: 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, chopped ½ cup diced red onion ½ clove garlic 1 sliced serrano chile juice of ½ a juicy lime a few pinches of salt & pepper for the tostadas: Here optional additions: ½ cup refried beans a few chickpeas, black beans or another protein roasted okra a few sprouts hot sauce or sriracha Instructions Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix together salsa ingredients and let chill for at least 20 minutes (while you prep everything else). Before serving, taste and adjust seasonings. Toss sweet potato cubes with olive oil, salt & pepper, and spread on a baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown. During the last 10 minutes of baking, brush tortillas with olive oil and pop those in the oven until crispy. (Optional: if you're making okra, drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper and roast at the same time - for about 15 minutes or until they start to brown). Remove sweet potatoes from the oven. While they're still warm, toss them with cumin and chile powder. Assemble tostadas with a spread of refried beans, smashed avocado (use the back of a fork to gently mash a bit onto each tortilla), a squeeze of lime, roasted sweet potatoes, a spoonful of tomato salsa, and any of the other optional toppings.

Black Bean Flautas with Avocado Dipping Sauce
Ingredients 1/2 cup chopped red onion 1/4 cup chopped cilantro Juice of 1 large lime 1 (16-ounce) can spicy vegetarian refried black beans 16 white corn tortillas, warmed (see note) Grapeseed, vegetable, or canola oil for pan frying Avocado Dipping Sauce (see recipe below) Chopped lettuce, cilantro, hot sauce, and lime wedges for serving Instructions In a small bowl, combine the red onion, chopped cilantro, and lime juice. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally. In a large heavy skillet, heat ¼-inch of oil over medium heat. Working with one tortilla at a time, spread 1 heaping tablespoon of refried black beans and 1/2 tablespoon of the onion, cilantro, and lime mixture evenly along one side of the tortilla. Gently roll the tortilla tightly beginning on the side with the filling. Use a toothpick to secure the flauta so it doesn't unroll while cooking. Place the prepared flautas seam side down in the hot oil and cook, rotating with tongs, until they are golden brown and crispy on all sides, approximately 4-5 minutes per batch. Continue to cook the rest of the flautas in batches, adding more oil as needed. Remove the toothpicks after you have fried them and serve with Avocado Dipping Sauce, lettuce, cilantro, hot sauce, and lime wedges.
