1. Preparing the Sweet Potatoes

Start by preheating your oven to 425°F. Toss the diced sweet potatoes with olive oil, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper. Spread them out on a baking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes, or until they are tender and slightly crispy.

2. Cooking the Black Beans and Onions

While the sweet potatoes are roasting, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced red onion and cook until it becomes translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute. Stir in the black beans and cook until they are heated through.

3. Assembling the Tacos

Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave. Once the sweet potatoes are ready, start assembling your tacos. Place a generous amount of roasted sweet potatoes on each tortilla, followed by the black bean and onion mixture. Top with avocado slices, fresh cilantro, and any other toppings of your choice.

4. Serving and Enjoying

Squeeze a wedge of lime over each taco for a burst of citrusy flavor. Serve immediately and enjoy these delightful, healthy, and easy-to-make tacos with your family or friends.
