Black Bean Sweet Potato Tacos

These Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos are so easy to make and taste amazing. Don't think I'm crazy, but they are almost better meatless? You can taste all the delicious flavor, and no meat is overpowering the delicious fresh flavors.

Looking to change things up a little bit? These Black Bean Sweet Potato Tacos are SO good and healthy.

You could easily add some chicken or ground turkey if you need, but they are delicious without. I’m telling you, you just need to try it.

My husband was not on board at first, when I told him what we were having for dinner. The first thing he asked was, “Why aren’t you putting meat in it? Do you need me to go grab some?”

I forced him to try one, and he was hooked. My meat eater of a husband loved these tacos, and they were still full of protein and all the good stuff.

If you are looking for a simple and healthy dish, this is one you definitely need to try.

what meat could I add to this?

If you are persistent on having meat in your tacos, I totally get it. I thought it was so strange to have a taco without meat in it, at first, until I tried it.

If you are looking for a meat that pairs well with these tacos, here is what I recommend:

-Ground Turkey (healthy and clean, with won’t over power the taste).
-Ground Beef
-Chicken (grilled or shredded would be delicious).
-Bacon (bacon pairs very nicely with sweet potatoes, and I highly recommend the combination).

Top Notch Toppings

Toppings can really transform a taco.  Instead or in addition to the cilantro, feta, and guacamole, you could try any of the following:

  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Roasted corn
  • Diced avocado
  • Monterey or pepper jack cheese
  • Fried tortilla strips

  • Roasted sweet potatoes
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (3 to 4 medium sweet potatoes), peeled and sliced into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika (the smoked flavor is amazing!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Spicy black beans
  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained (or 3 cups cooked black beans)
  • 1 small yellow or white onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Tortillas and garnishes
  • 8 to 10 small tortillas
  • Crumbled feta
  • Guacamole
  • cilantro


  1. Roast the sweet potatoes:
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Toss the prepared sweet potatoes with olive oil, cayenne pepper and salt. Arrange in a single layer and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, tossing halfway.
  3. Prepare the black beans:
  4. Warm the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and a sprinkle of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have softened (about 5 minutes). Add the cumin and chili powder and cook for about 30 seconds while stirring. Pour in the beans and 1/3 cup water. Stir, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, then remove the lid and use the back of a fork or potato masher to mash up at least half of the beans. Remove from heat, stir in salt and pepper, and cover until you're ready to serve.
  5. Assemble the tacos: Spread black beans down the middle of the tortilla, top with sweet potatoes and guacamole. Garnish with feta and cilantro,
