These straightforward avocado sweet potato tacos with chili heat make a delectable vegetarian supper when topped with a creamy avocado lime salsa.

I wanted to re-share with you this old favorite avocado sweet potato taco recipe. These sweet potato tacos are one of those dishes that I’ve been making for a while, but I keep going back to them because they make a satisfying and flavorful vegetarian midweek supper.

What’s not to love about a recipe with a minimal ingredient list and simple instructions? Additionally, I find that roasted sweet potatoes, especially when wrapped in warm tortillas like a huge hug, are such a comforting snack for the winter.

The avocado sweet potato tacos essentially consist of two steps:

  1. How to prepare the avocado yogurt sauce: Just combine Greek yogurt, avocado, garlic, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a blender. The recipe below offers a cashew cream substitute if you’re vegan. The yogurt could easily be replaced with vegan mayo. Add some cilantro to the sauce for a herbaceous flavor. If you prefer your food hot, you might want to taste-test by adding a piece of jalapeno. If you wanted to occasionally switch things up, this Creamy Chipotle Sauce would also be fantastic on these tacos.
  2. Sweet potatoes are roasted in olive oil with salt, pepper, and chili powder.

I’m done now! Simply put the sweet potatoes, black beans, and sauce on the tacos. This time, I added some pickled onions to the top of mine. In the past, I’ve added extra diced avocado to them (see the picture below).

Last but not least, I always, always, always sprinkle a lot of lime juice over my sweet potato tacos to give them extra zing!


Easy to prepare vegan or gluten-free, these sweet potato tacos make a wonderful vegetarian midweek meal.
