sweet potato tacos

the what:


organic corn tortillas

2 ripe avocados


1/2 medium red onion

1 medium sweet potato

1 lime

can of organic black beans

salsa (preferrably fresh, organic and flavorful!)

salt, pepper, red pepper flakes

trader joe’s chilli pepper sauce (or similar)

the how:


-roast chopped sweet potatoes coated in EVOO and sea salt until semi soft (I used the toaster oven at 375 degrees)

-while potatoes are roasting, make a quick batch of guacamole (using avocados, cilantro, some chopped red onion, the salsa, sea salt and  1/2 the lime)

- sautee chopped red onion, sweet potatoes, red pepper flakes, sea salt, black pepper and a healthy dash of the trader joes chilli pepper sauce in EVOO until the veggies are soft. 

- add black beans (1/2-3/4 c) to sweet potato mixture and heat for one more minute

-heat corn tortilla over open flame

-pile the sweet potato mixture, guacamole, and cilantro and a squeeze of the lime

-try not to make a total pig of yourslf in front of your fiance while simultaneously shoving taco in your mouth and talking about what an amazing chef you’re turning out to be.

*this recipe will feed two hungry adults, with only a little leftover beans and guac.  double it up for easy leftovers!
