Sweet Potato Tostadas

After a long day of work, I like dinner to be easy.  This is one way to use up leftover potato filling or vegetables with little prep work and lots of flavor!  Feel free to sub out any ingredients in the recipe (as with every recipe) to make it your own!  You can also add the cashew sour cream dressing from the burrito bowl recipe (just add less water to make it thicker).

  • Juice of ½ a lime or ½ a lemon
