- 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
- 8 small corn tortillas
- 2 avocados
- 1 small red onion, finely chopped
- 1 lime, juiced
- Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)
- Optional toppings: diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, salsa
Preheat the Oven & Season Sweet Potatoes:
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). In a large bowl, toss the diced sweet potatoes with olive oil, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper until evenly coated. Spread the sweet potatoes out in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized, stirring halfway through.
Prepare the Black Beans:
While the sweet potatoes are roasting, heat the black beans in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add a pinch of cumin, salt, and pepper to taste. Keep them warm until they are ready to serve.
Make the Guacamole:
In a medium bowl, mash the avocados with a fork. Stir in the chopped red onion, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Adjust the seasoning to your liking.
Warm the Tortillas:
Wrap the corn tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until they are warm and pliable.
Assemble the Tacos:
Lay out the warm tortillas and fill each one with a spoonful of roasted sweet potatoes and black beans. Top with a generous dollop of guacamole.
Add Toppings & Garnish:
Finish by adding your favorite toppings such as diced tomatoes, shredded cheese, sour cream, or salsa. Garnish with fresh cilantro for an extra burst of flavor.
Serve these vibrant tacos immediately while they’re still warm and enjoy the mix of flavors and textures that will make this Taco Tuesday truly unforgettable.
