Ingredient Substitutions

  • Olive oil. Any neutral oil works well in this recipe! My top two recommendations are olive oil and avocado oil.

  • Spices.¬† If you’d like to add a little heat (I am a spice wimp), toss in some chili powder. If you’re not a fan of one of the spices, you can easily customize them to your liking by increasing what you love and decreasing what you don’t. However, I find this spice blend perfect.¬

  • Bell peppers. I use a total of 3 small bell peppers. Choose your favorite color (red, green, yellow orange,purple), or if you aren’t a fan, you can substitute a different vegetable. I sometimes use this as a “clean the produce drawer” recipe and toss in whatever I have on hand.

  • Black beans. Any bean would work well in this recipe, however black beans are my favorite. Chickpeas are another great choice.

  • Honey. If you’d like to make this recipe vegan you can substitute maple syrup for the honey, but the taste will be a touch different. Other vegan sweeteners include agave, date syrup, and brown rice syrup!

To Store:

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. This recipe makes a large amount of taco filling, so I love eating the leftovers for lunches throughout the week.¬

To reheat

To restore the crispiness, reheat the sweet potato tacos in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 10-15 minutes (be sure to check often). They can also be warmed in the microwave, and they will still be delicious but won’t be crispy.¬
