Sweet Potato, Pinto Bean, Corn Tacos

Most readers will realise by now that I’d happily eat sweet potatoes every day for the rest of my life. This vegetarian taco recipe is so filling that you’ll never even notice the lack of meat. Although if you are like me, you won’t be able to eat just one taco.

I say eat multiple tacos because they are small, fresh and packed full of veggies.

The sweet potatoes smell divine roasting in all their spices. 
If only smell ‘o’ vision had already been invented…
Preheat the oven to 425 F. Line a tray with foil. Put the sweet potatoes in a bowl and toss with the spices and 2 tablespoons of olive oil until everything is evenly coated. Spread them out on the tray and bake for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are tender. (Turn them over halfway through baking.)

A delicious foundation that will promptly be built upon.
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add your chopped onions and saute for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic in during the last minute. Reduce the heat and add in the corn, beans, lime juice and honey. When everything is warmed through, remove it from the heat and put it into a large bowl. Add the sweet potatoes and the cilantro into the bowl and toss.

Now for some homemade salsa.
I make my own fresh salsa and you can find the recipe in my recipe tab. Top your tortillas with the sweet potato mix, salsa and shredded manchego cheese.
