Sweet Potato and Black Bean Vegetarian Tacos Recipe 


  • 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 15-oz can black beans, heated on the stove top
  • 2 large ripe avocados
  • ½ cup feta cheese or cotija cheese crumbles
  • Fresh cilantrooptional
  • 8 corn tortillas*
  • Enchilada sauce or salsa for dipping or drizzling


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Peel and chop the sweet potatoes and transfer them to a large baking sheet along with the avocado oil, chili powder, and sea salt.
    Pile of chopped sweet potatoes and seasonings on a sheet pan.
  • Use your hands to toss everything together until the sweet potatoes are coated in oil and seasonings. Spread the sweet potatoes in a single layer over the sheet pan so that they bake evenly.
    Raw seasoned sweet potatoes spread across a baking sheet, ready to roast.
  • Bake sweet potatoes at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden-brown and soft on the inside. The exact roasting time depends on the size of the sweet potato chunks, so start keeping an eye on the sweet potatoes around 18 minutes to be sure they get nice and crispy but don’t become overcooked.

  • While the sweet potatoes are roasting, heat the black beans in a small saucepan on the stove top until hot. Chop up (or prepare) any additional taco toppings as well.
  • Heat up your tortillas using your preferred method. I usually microwave mine but heating them on the stove top works great too.
  • Load up the tortillas with roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, sliced avocado, fresh chopped cilantro, and cheese.

  • Drizzle the tacos with enchilada sauce or use enchilada sauce in a bowl as a dipping sauce. As an alternative, use your favorite salsa or hot sauce.
  • Enjoy these delicious healthy vegetarian tacos!
