Honey-Lime Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos #SundaySupper

You know I’m all about meat… burgers, chicken, steak… you name it! Β But sometimes you just want to lighten it up a bit, and that’s where this meal comes into play. Β It’s a vegetarian taco meal, but for all you omnivores out there… don’t be turned off by the lack of meat… these black bean and sweet potato soft tacos are hearty enough to satisfy both vegetarians and meat-eaters alike!

An absolutely delicious vegetarian soft taco that even meat-eaters will LOVE! Sweet potatoes mixed with protein packed black beans make these extra hearty!

Now tell me that doesn’t look hearty and delicious! πŸ™‚ Β Peeled sweet potatoes are roasted with spices until they’re lightly caramelized, then sauteedΒ with black beans, corn, onions, and tossed with a touch of honey and lime. Β Spoon that wonderful taco filling into some flour tortillas, top with some diced buttery avocado, shredded lettuce and purple cabbage, and torn cilantro leaves, and finish with a cool and refreshing honey, cilantro, and lime sour cream.

MY LATEST RECIPES

Not only is this meal incredibly delicious and hearty, it’s also simple to prepare… in aboutΒ 30 minutes! Β Perfect for a quick weeknight meal πŸ™‚

You may have noticed the extra part of my post title… #SundaySupper. Β This is a group I’ve recently become a part of that I hold very close to my heart. Β It’s all about bringing families around the dinner table to share a meal prepared with love, and promoting togetherness. Β Growing up, more often than not, we all had dinner together. Β At the time, I didn’t realize how important that was, but I do now. Β My kids are young, so it’s easy for us all to have a meal together. Β Even when my husband works late… if it’s at all possible, I hold dinner so we can try to eat together. Β As the kids get older, I know it will be harder to always eat together, but I love the idea of a Sunday dinner. Β So I’m very excited to be a part of this movement and I hope you’ll all share in my excitement!

This week’s #SundaySupper event is all about BEANS πŸ™‚ Β A big thanks to Tammie over at Momma’s MealsΒ for hosting this event!

Okay, on to the recipe at hand πŸ™‚ Β The first thing you’ll do is peel some sweet potatoes, toss them with some olive oil and your seasonings. Β Roast them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.

While the potatoes are roasting, saute your onion and garlic, then add in the drained black beans, and corn. Β Add in the roasted sweet potatoes and toss together with some honey and lime juice and minced cilantro.

Your filling is complete! Β You may have noticed in the beginning pictures that my flour tortillas look a little… ahem…Β rustic and not quite round and uniform lol. Β I made my own Flour Tortillas earlier in the day πŸ™‚ Β If you’ve never made your own before… don’t be scared by it… it’s verrrrrry simple, takes about 30-40 minutes, and the flavor is absolutely incredible! Β However, these black bean tacos would still be amazingly good with store-bought tortillas as well πŸ™‚

Now you can top these tacos with any toppings you want, seriously, customize these to your tastes πŸ™‚ Β I chose some shredded romaine lettuce, shredded purple cabbage (I love the color and the crunch), diced avocado, roughly chopped cilantro leaves and aΒ deliciousΒ cream sauce. Β To make the sauce I just combined sour cream, lime juice, cilantro, honey, and a pinch of salt and chili powder in my food processor and pulsed until I had a smooth, creamy sauce.

You can see that the cream sauce is completely optional… the tacos are delicious with or without it πŸ™‚

  54. These look fabulous! I love a good vegetarian meal and the flavors of this dish sound absolutely delicious. So glad to have found your blog, so many great recipes that I’m anxious to try! xx Jamie

  55. I love Tacos in all forms. Your recipe sounds like I will add it to my personal recipe list, so delicious! Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  56. I totally agree that suppers should be shared. That was some of our best times together. It does get difficult at times, but it’s even easier to make excuses not to do it when it can be done. Your taco’s look delicious! I made my own tortillas once and they weren’t great. I’ll have to try your recipe!

    • I love gathering around the dinner table, eating great food, sharing memories and talking about our days… it’s one of those things that will never get old πŸ™‚ I hope you like my recipe, it’s definitely a staple in our house… my husband gets all snobby if I bring home a package of store-bought tortillas… he’s hooked on the homemade lol πŸ™‚

  57. These tacos look delicious, love the sweet potato filling, and those tortillas…I could devour a couple right now. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Jo!! I can’t even count the number of times I’ve made this meal, they’re just that good πŸ™‚ I make the filling and wrap them in wontons and egg rolls too πŸ™‚

  58. I love light suppers and I always try vegetarian at least once/week. Your tacos looks great, I have only tried to make my own tortillas once and remember a flour filled kitchen and horrible pieces of what should have been tortillas! Yours looks great and this looks so yummy πŸ™‚

  59. They look so good! What interesting combination of flavours you put together! It’s almost dinner time here… and I’m drooling over your pictures!

  60. I love the combination of sweet potatoes and black beans – those tacos sound delicious! Pinned πŸ™‚

  61. These are super yummy. I like to sprinkle on some cotija cheese. The recipe says 6 servings but i can’t get more than 3.

    • I’m so glad you love the recipe Catherine! Ooooh cotija cheese would be phenomenal on these, great tip πŸ™‚ Well it all depends how big your servings are. When I make this my husband and I each have about 3 tacos and there’s still some left over
