These Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos are amazing homemade vegetarian tacos. They are drizzled with a delicious creamy Lime Crema!
Happy March! I’m definitely ready for some fresh spring recipes, and (best part) super early prep for Cinco de Mayo! I tend to eat Mexican recipes all year round so I’m pretty sure by the actual celebration I’ll have quite a lot of recipes to share with you. That’s always good news, isn’t it? So let’s get right to these amazing vegetarian tacos. Let the pre-celebrations begin!
Sweet potatoes and black beans are a definite staple in my household. My husband and I usually don’t buy irish potatoes, and he loves sweet potatoes even more than I do, so we put them in just about everything. I’ve been craving making tacos for weeks now, and I knew immediately that not only would it of course be vegetarian, but it had to have fresh and in season ingredients that would come together super easy. That’s what I love about tacos. They can have such a variety of ingredients and always. Taste. AMAZING.
These tacos were a no brainer and came together perfectly. I’ve made them quite a few times now. The sweet potatoes and red onions are cooked until the sweet potatoes are crispy on the outside and the onions are semi caramelised, and then all the delectable seasonings are added to the mix. Truthfully, I would mix this in with quinoa and add the lime crema and this would make a perfect dish. But of course, tacos.
The fresh veggies make a world of a difference to not only filling these up with beautiful colours, but also by adding a nice spring-like freshness for a crunchy, creamy, tangy, spicy and sweet combination. The lime crema on top is definitely the icing on top, figuratively speaking of course. Unless you actually want icing. Treat yo self.
