Mouth Watering Sriacha Black Bean & Sweet Potato Tostada :)

Fall is upon us!  The best things about fall are the changing colors, and the changing recipes!  I have always thought of Sweet Potatoes as a fall food, maybe because I grew up eating sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving In forms of pies or casseroles.  The great thing about sweet potatoes is, they are packed full of goodness!

Sweet Potatoes are a Native American plant which was a main source of nourishment for the early homesteaders!  These roots are among the most nutritious foods in the vegetable food group.  Sweet potatoes are packed full of calcium, potassium, and vitamins C and also A!

Today BuckeyeMomsMeet is bringing to the table a Tostada like no other!  Unlike the traditional Tostada, This recipe is packed with a punch of vitamins and spices that will have you coming back for seconds, or even thirds!  The Sriacha Black Bean & Sweet Potato Tostada!!
