instructions
Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Transfer to the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the sweet potatoes roast, thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Drain and rinse the beans. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic

Cook the beans:
3 Cook the beans:

While the sweet potatoes continue to roast, in a medium pan (nonstick if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add the beans, remaining spice blend, and 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and mashing the beans with the back of a spoon, 2 to 4 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the sour cream. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan. 

Cook the chicken:
4 Cook the chicken:

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or the chicken is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Toast the tortillas:
5 Toast the tortillas:

While the chicken cooks, place the tortillas on a separate sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; turn to coat. Toast in the oven 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven. 

Serve your dish:
6 Serve your dish:

Assemble the tostadas using the toasted tortillas, mashed beans, and cooked chicken. Serve the tostadas with the roasted sweet potatoes on the side. Garnish with the queso blanco (crumbling before adding) and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
