Sweet Potato Tacos

I discovered this recipe over at Gluten Free Cooking School and adapted it slightly.  So so so good.  Wonderfully different tacos, and wonderfully different way to prepare sweet potatoes.

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 yellow pepper, diced
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1/2 apple, diced
  • 1 packet guacamole seasoning (check labels)
  • romaine lettuce, chopped
  • corn tortillas

Peel and dice two sweet potatoes and boil till tender. While the potatoes are boiling, saute the diced onions and yellow pepper in a large skillet. Add the black beans, diced apple, and seasoning packet. Mix well. Once the potatoes are done, gently stir them in with the other ingredients being careful not to accidentally mash them. Turn the heat to low and let everything sit while you heat the tortillas in a little oil. Top the tortillas with chopped Romaine lettuce and then spoon on the filling and enjoy.  I think these taste great with a little ranch dressing or sour cream.

* If you don’t have a packet of guacamole seasoning handy, try 1 tsp. cumin powder, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/8 – 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper.
