Sweet Potato Tacos

When you’re looking for a quick and tasty dinner, these boldly flavored sweet potato tacos are a terrific choice.

Cubed sweet potato and corn kernels are roasted in the oven until creamy and caramelized. The chipotle slaw is made with shredded cabbage mixed with a quick, tangy dressing of lime juice, chipotle chili, cilantro, maple syrup, and garlic.

Roasted sweet potatoes, caramelized bits of corn, creamy avocado, and crispy slaw nestled in warm corn tortillas make these tacos unforgettable.
