Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos will be your favorite meatless meal after the first bite. They’re incredibly easy to prepare, flavorful, and filling.

I toss the sweet potatoes with a little chili powder to contrast their natural sweetness and bring some heat to the tacos. Use your favorite chili spice blend! šŸŒ®

How to Make the Tacos

  1. Season chopped sweet potatoes with salt, pepper, cumin, and smoked paprika. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Add onions and garlic, tossing to coat, then add sweet potatoes and stir.
  2. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, until sweet potatoes are just softened and cooked through.
  3. Once sweet potatoes are cooked, add in black beans and toss well. Cover and cook again for 5-6 minutes until everything is warmed through.
  4. Heat tortillas and serve sweet potato mixture topped with cheese, cilantro, and avocado slices. For spicy tacos, add jalapeƱo slices as a topping.

  • Place a layer of guacamole on warm tortillas, layer sweet potato mixture with cilantro, and top with crumbled cotija cheese. 
  • Add corn kernels to the sweet potato mixture
  • Replace black beans with pinto beans.
