SWEET POTATO TACOS [4 servings]
What You’ll Need:
- 3 Large Sweet Potatoes
- 1 Fresh Poblano Pepper
- 1 Whole Red Onion
- 6 Regular Corn Tortillas or 9 Street Taco Size Corn Tortillas
- 1 Teaspoon Cumin
- 1/8th Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- 3 Tablespoons Vegetable oil
- ¼ Cup Picked Cilantro
Preheat oven to 375° Degrees
Wash + cut sweet potatoes in half and then into 1/4 inch wide slices. Place in a large bowl. Remove seeds from Poblano, and cut into ½ inch slices. Add to bowl. Cut red onion in half and then into ½ inch wide slices and add to bowl. Toss all vegetables together to mix well, and stir in vegetable oil, cumin, cayenne, and season with salt + pepper. Spread potato mixture onto a baking sheet and cook in the oven at 375° for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender [but not mushy]. If onions or peppers get slightly charred, don’t panic– you’re right on track. To serve, gently heat tortillas and spoon warm potato mix into each shell. Top with fresh cilantro + your favorite condiments [two tasty options below], and dig in!
