Irresistible Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos

Where have these irresistible sweet potato and black bean tacos been all my life? I don’t know because for most of my life I wasn’t looking for anything that had to do with sweet potatoes. I did not like my experiences with sweet potatoes as a kid and until about a year ago I didn’t eat them except maybe once a year.

All that has changed.

Now I love sweet potatoes! I was out with my family recently and had some delicious sweet potato tacos. I wanted to recreate them in my own kitchen and this is what I came up with.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos

Mix together:

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

In another bowl combine:

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1 15 ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed

2-3 medium sized sweet potatoes, diced, and roasted or par cooked

Next, add the spice mixture to the sweet potato mixture and you are ready to put it in a taco shell or soft taco. Top with pickled cabbage and a small dollop of plant-based sour cream.

These sweet potato tacos make an irresistible lunch or dinner any day of the week.
