    Great post as always, Joanne! I see you are loving Heidi’s new cookbook. I love her too! But I want to hear how this dish tasted–no mention of that!

    Yuuuumm….you know, the Mexican grocery store next to my house sells fresh-made blue corn tortillas every day. That would go SO well with this. Nuttiness and chocolatey beans!

  31. You know what’s weird–I often order tostadas in restaurants but never make them at home. I need to change that! And, with black beans and chocolate I need to change that soon.
