Spicy Sweet Taco Bowl


A little spicy, a little sweet – you will love what is going on with the flavor in this taco bowl!
I have mentioned before that Sunday in our house is taco day vs. the #tacotuesday trend that is happening all over the social space.
At first, I thought this combo was going to be a overly spicy from the chipotle peppers in adobe sauce – but then when I tasted it – there was a hint of sweetness from the sweet potato and I declared this was a perfect combo!
This southwest flavored bowl is sure to delight your tastebuds no matter what day of the week you choose as your ‘taco Tuesday’! 🙂
Fiesta time!
