  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a large bowl, toss the diced sweet potatoes with olive oil, cumin, chili powder, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Spread them out on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes until they are tender and slightly crispy.
  3. While the sweet potatoes are roasting, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil and sauté the sliced red onion until it’s soft and caramelized.
  4. Once the sweet potatoes are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly. Then, assemble your tacos by placing a spoonful of black beans, roasted sweet potatoes, caramelized onions, and shredded cheddar cheese onto each tortilla.
  5. Top each taco with a dollop of sour cream and a few cilantro leaves for freshness.
  6. Serve your Sweet Potato & Black Bean Tacos with lime wedges on the side for a zesty kick.
