Sweet Potato Black Bean Tacos

Looking for a healthy vegetarian meal? Look no further than these tasty tacos!

photo(14)1 large sweet potato

1 can black beans

1 small yellow onion

1 avocado, cut into bite sized pieces

½ bunch kale

8 6-inch tortillas (white corn/wheat mix works well)

Cumin or coriander

Olive oil


Pre-cook sweet potato in the microwave for 3 minutes, then cut sweet potato into ½ in cubes.  Toss cubes in 1 tablespoon olive oil and bake at 375°F for 25-30 minutes, or until tender and golden.

While the potatoes are cooking heat the beans over low heat, adding a pinch of cumin or coriander midway through.

Dice onion and sauté in olive oil until tender.  (If you are feeling adventurous and have a dark beer around, cooking the onions in beer instead of olive oil yields a nice flavor).

Rip washed kale into bite size pieces and sauté in a pan over medium heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

Divide sweet potato, beans, onion, kale, and avocado evenly amongst 8 tacos.
