Directions 8 steps | 50 Minutes

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Measure and prep all ingredients.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the potatoes with olive oil, chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Toss to evenly coat.

Step 3

Spread the potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through, until the sweet potatoes are tender and a fork or knife inserted in the center easily slides through.

Step 4

While the potato is baking, make the black bean salsa. In a mixing bowl, combine the black beans, corn, tomato, red onion and cilantro.

Step 5

In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper.

Step 6

Pour the dressing over the black bean mixture and toss to coat.

Step 7

When the potatoes are done, assemble the tacos. On a tortilla, add the sweet potatoes. Layer it with the black bean salsa, then the avocado slices.

Step 8

Top with the pickled jalapeños and the crumbled queso fresco. Enjoy!


Notes:
