Sweet Potato & Bean Tacos 
Serves 5 - 6  


1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained

1 sweet potato, diced into 1/2-inch cubes

1 white onion, diced

1 poblano, seeded and diced

1 tbsp. minced garlic

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. smoked paprika

1 1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 dozen corn tortillas (6-inch )


Pico de Gallo salsa

Cilantro, chopped

Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (optional)

Avocado slices


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. 

Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, until sweet potatoes are just softened and cooked through.

 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.

Heat tortillas and serve sweet potato mixture topped with cheese, cilantro, and avocado slices. For spicy tacos, add jalapeƱo slices as a topping.
