Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans

Cilantro Lime Avocado Salsa

  • 1 avocado (diced small)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (minced)
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 1 teaspoon agave
  • tortillas or taco shells of your choice


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Toss the sweet potatoes with the olive oil, chili powder, cumin and paprika until evenly coated.
  • Roast the sweet potatoes for 20 minutes, tossing halfway, or until fork tender.
  • While the sweet potatoes are roasting, add the black beans to a small saucepan over low heat to warm. Mix into the roasted sweet potatoes.
  • Prepare the avocado salsa by mixing the avocado, cilantro, lime juice, and agave in a small bowl.
  • To assemble the tacos, place the sweet potato mixture into the tortillas of your choice and top with the avocado salsa.
  • Add additional toppings, as desired. See notes for suggestions.



Tips and Techniques

  • Honey can be substituted for agave, if preferred.
  • Store leftover taco filling in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
  • Leftover avocado doesn’t store well and will turn brown fairly quickly. You may want to consider purchasing a second avocado so that you can make a fresh batch when you are ready to eat any leftovers.
