Chipotle Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Tostadas


This meal is our household favorite! If you normally eat meat, trust me when I tell you, this veggie dish is so packed with flavor you won’t miss it! You might event prefer this one to a beef option. Here is what you need:


  • 1 head of cauliflower

  • 2 small sweet potatoes

  • 1 can of refried black beans. I use the jalapeño black beans from Trader Joe’s.

  • 2 bell peppers (red, orange, or yellow)

  • 1 red onion

  • Shredded Mexican Cheese blend

  • Lettuce

  • Avocado

  • Chipotle tabasco

  • Chipotle Southwest seasoning

  • Chilli powder

  • Cumin

  • Salt and Pepper

  • Tostada shells



  • Pre-heat oven to 450

  • Cut cauliflower heads off stems and break in to small pieces on baking sheet.

  • Cut sweet potatoes into small cubes and add to the baking sheet.

  • Drizzle in olive oil

  • Season with chipotle southwest seasoning, chili powder, and cumin, then toss.

  • Bake veggies for 15 minutes, flip over and continue baking for 10 minutes or until browned.

  • Chop your onion and bell peppers and sauté in a large frying pan with olive oil. I like to cook my onions and peppers extra long so they are browned and caramelized.

  • While onions and peppers sauté, heat beans in the microwave. I like to add chipotle hot sauce to my beans for a little spice.

  • Chop the lettuce and prepare the cheese and avocado on a serving board.

  • When the veggies are done roasting set them aside. Using a new baking sheet spread tostada shells across the the sheet and bake for 5 min.

  • Place peppers and onions in a bowl, cauliflower and sweet potatoes in a bowl, and warmed tostada shells on a plate and serve with the platter of lettuce, cheese, and avocado.
