Southwest Chipotle Sweet Potato Tacos | Three Olives Branch | www.threeolivesbranch.comAs you might have noticed by now, I love making Mexican food.  And I love using chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for so many dishes.  The smoky, savory flavor is just perfect!  LA MORENA® brand is great because you can depend on them to use high quality peppers and other trusted ingredients for a delicious meal.  There are so many great ways to use their products, even in seafood or vegetarian dishes like this one!  I seriously love using the sauce and the peppers themselves in so many ways, just like with these Southwest Chipotle Sweet Potato Tacos.  It is a distinct, smoky flavor that is perfect in Latin and Mexican cooking.  You can find it at your local Walmart in the Hispanic section.

Southwest Chipotle Sweet Potato Tacos

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 8 tacos

Ingredients

Sweet Potato Tacos

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup onion diced (any color)
  • 1/2 lb sweet potato (approx 1 large), peeled and cut into 1/4" cubes
  • 1/4 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp LA MORENA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (I use the sauce from the can)
  • 1-3 LA MORENA® Chipotle Peppers in Adobo (from the can, optional for more heat) (finely chopped)
  • 1-3 LA MORENA® Sliced Jalapenos (to taste, optional)
  • 4-8 corn tortillas

Chipotle Crema

Instructions

  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and cook until translucent, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the sweet potato, cumin, garlic powder, and chipotle in adobo sauce. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium low and sautee until the sweet potatoes are tender, approximately 12-15 minutes.
  • Stir in the corn, black beans, chopped chipotles in adobo, and pickled jalapenos. Stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and spices as desired.
  • Mix the chipotle cream ingredients together in a small bowl if using and serve alongside the tacos.
  • Serve the sweet potato mixture in tortilla shells with toppings of choice.

Notes

Here are some of my favorite toppings for tacos: cilantro, lime wedges, sour cream, radish slices, cotija cheese, jalapenos, salsa.
For the chipotle in adobos, you can just scoop out the sauce that the peppers are in for this recipe.  Add some chopped up peppers themselves for more heat or save for another recipe.
This recipe makes approximately 8 tacos, or 4 overly stuffed tacos.
Season your tacos to taste with salt and additional spices.  Adjust ratios of black beans, corn, and sweet potato to preference.
