Except sweet potato tacos.
Let me give you a little back story. My husband accepted a challenge several years ago to eat vegan for a month and then decided to extend it to a full year. One of our favorite meals to make is tacos, so we had to get creative with a vegan taco. My husband wanted something that took the place of meat but did not pretend to be meat. He still wanted the essence of a taco but not the let down of a “I still remember the taste of a meat taco and this doesn’t come close” meat substitute.
Enter the beautiful sweet potato. My husband decided to cut one up in really tiny cubes, toss them with a delicious chili powder blend, and bake the sweet potato bites until the outsides were crispy. The sweet and spicy crispy sweet potato bites, combined with all the other elements of a delicious taco, made my taste buds sing.
Sweet potato tacos have become a staple in our household and are something even this ground beef taco-loving lady looks forward to for dinner. Give these tacos a try and put your own spin on them. Get creative with your toppings. This recipe heats up well for leftovers, so you can have tacos for dinner and a taco bowl for lunch the next day. Be careful – you too will fall in love with sweet potato tacos!
