From the Test Kitchen

Tostadas are a beloved Latin American dish whose name is a reference to the toasted tortillas at its base. These feature our take on refried beans and tender chicken cooked with fiery chipotle chile paste—whose smoky heat is complemented by the warming spices on our side of roasted sweet potatoes.

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; 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.

3 Cook & mash 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. Turn off the heat and stir in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Transfer to a bowl.

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 until the chicken is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
