Switch up the usual taco or burrito routine for sweet potato tacos. I love adding a little spice to heat up my sweet potatoes. I personally think it’s the best way to enjoy them. And just like most other Mexican-inspired dishes, you get a lot of freedom to throw in a little of this and that to suite your own taste and dietary preferences. Bonus–it’s super healthy!

⏱️ 40 mins

4-6 Servings


  • 4-6 flour (taco-sized) or corn tortillas
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted (or oil of choice)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 3 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)

Toppings (Optional):

  • guacamole or diced avocado
  • Mexican Crema, sour cream, or plain Greek yogurt
  • Verde sauce
  • chopped cilantro


  1. Set oven to 425Β°F. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  2. In a bowl, drizzle oil over sweet potatoes. Add all of the seasonings and toss with hands. Adjust seasoning to taste, if needed.
  3. Pour sweet potatoes onto cookie sheet and place in oven to bake approximately 20 minutes, turning about halfway through, until tender. While baking, prepare toppings and sides.
  4. Once completely baked, remove potatoes from oven. Serve on top of tortillas and finish off with preferred toppings–fold and enjoy! πŸ˜‹

I suggest serving with black or refried beans, corn and/or grilled pineapple on the side.
