SWEET POTATOES We peel and cut our own but you can often find them cubed in the produce section saving time!

SEASONINGS Taco seasoning is a must (and homemade is our favorite).  A squeeze of lime and some fresh cilantro before serving are the perfect addition.

VEGGIES We love bell peppers and corn but you can swap in your fave veggies. Zucchini and mushrooms are great additions.

TORTILLAS Flour or corn tortillas make these sweet potato tacos perfectly portable and totally delish! Swap out tortillas for cilantro rice or Mexican rice to make a bowl.

Tips & Tricks

  • For crispy roasted sweet potatoes and veggies, place the sheet pan under the broiler for 4 to 5 minutes or until they are extra browned.
  • Keep tortillas soft and pliable by reheating them in the microwave or even over a gas stove directly on the flame.
  • Once the mixture is cooled, it can be stored in the refrigerator for extra meals for up to 4 days.
  • Freeze portions in quart-sized bags with the date labeled on the outside for up to 1 month. Thaw, reheat, and serve!

  2. Delicious! My family loved it. This is the BEST sweet potato tacos recipe I have ever tried.
