No, trust me. They’re good. This coming from someone who eats a whole lot of the more traditional version of this dish. 

Side note: whoever invented Taco Tuesdays should win the Nobel Peace Prize.



Yam and Black Bean Tacos

3 sweet potatoes, cut into 1” cubes

2 Tb olive oil

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 Tb cumin

1 tsp chili powder

1 14-oz can black beans

Warm corn tortillas in a dry sauté pan or in the microwave. Top tacos with fresh cilantro and cilantro sour cream.

I don't need convincing, just the title sounds great. I love Tacos in most varieties.
