Sweet Potato Taco Bowl

Jump to Recipe
Sweet Potato Taco Tuesday! Although for our family, taco night (or anything Mexican food related) is always Sunday night. This comes from a tradition that was started even before my husband and I had kids. I think we might’ve been dating! We used to make a huge plate of nachos, put two TV trays together, turn on our favorite show and have a feast. Awww, young love starts with a plate of shared nachos. 


Well, the big plate of nacho days are gone (because we really like to eat as a family around the table) and our Mexican / taco tastes have matured and changed. Plant based anyone? What still remains the same is homemade guacamole and good salsa (in tomato season, fresh homemade, nothing is better!).


Here is my new favorite taco bowl! This recipe does happen in multiple stages, so prep in advance – it is well worth it though!
