  • 4 Tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/8 - 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small yellow or white onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 oz can black beans thoroughly rinsed and drained, 14.5
  • 1 cup frozen corn thawed and drained
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Flour tortillas
  • Toppings:
  • Shredded romaine lettuce
  • Shredded purple cabbage
  • Diced avocado
  • Minced cilantro
  • Honey Lime and Cilantro Cream Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • small handful of fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Satl pepper and chili powder, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, set aside. Peel and dice sweet potatoes and place in large bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and add in paprika, cumin, chili powder, coriander, cayenne and salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly, then pour onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and slightly caramelized, stirring once halfway through baking.
  • While the potatoes are roasting, in a large skillet, heat remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute about 5 - 6 minutes, adding in garlic during last minute of cooking. Reduce heat a bit, to medium-low, add in drained and rinsed black beans, and corn, and heat until warmed through.
  • Add in roasted sweet potatoes, drizzle with honey and lime juice and cilantro. Stir to combine well. Serve over warm tortillas with desired toppings.
  • Combine sour cream, cilantro, lime juice, honey, salt, pepper, and chili powder in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Serve drizzled over the tacos.
