Sweet potato tacos

This recipe is inspired by a local Mexican restaurant. I never would have thought to put sweet potatoes into a taco until I tried it. And let me tell you, it’s delicious. It’s also cheap— sweet potatoes are about 75 cents at the moment. Sweet potatoes are rich in nutrients and good for digestion.

Recipe:

– 2 medium sweet potatoes – 1 can of black beans – 2-4 tortillas – 1 tbs cumin – 1/2 tbs chili powder. – a dash of pink Himalayan salt – a dash of pepper – shredded Colby jack cheese – sour cream – salsa

Directions: – peel and cut sweet potatoes into small 1.5 inch cubes

– pour 1 tbs of oil in a frying pan medium heat and pour the sweet potatoes on the pan.

– cook sweet potatoes for 25 minutes on medium heat. Stir often. Add seasonings, salt and pepper. Make sure potatoes are soft to the bite. Add beans. Stir.

– once mixture is fully cooked, add to soft tortillas and top with cheese, sour cream and salsa.

– enjoy!!! Save leftovers for lunch 🙂 great for salad toppings.
