Whether you call them chalupas or tostadas, this recipe will be a hit with your family. Take chalupa shells (purchase baked ones or toast corn tortillas in the oven until hard and crispy) and top with your favorite toppings such as mashed beans, avocado, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and my new favorite, roasted sweet potatoes. See recipe below.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

4 sweet potatoes

Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

1-2 garlic cloves

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash, peel, and cut sweet potatoes into 1 inch cubes. Place in a large glass or ceramic baking dish. Toss with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and add crushed garlic that is well coated in olive oil. Carefully toss. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until pieces are soft and caramelized.
