Sweet Potato Tacos with Cabbage Cups

Prep: 10 minutes + Cook: 5 minutes = Total 15 minutes

 

Ingredients

 2 medium-sized cooked sweet potatoes, mashed (any potato works)
 1 cup cooked black beans (15ounce can, partially drained)
 ½ tsp ground cumin
 ½ tsp chili powder
 6 purple cabbage cups (OR romaine leaves)
 1 Roma tomato, diced
 1 avocado, diced
 1 limes, sliced into wedges

Directions

1

Set freshly cooked and mashed sweet potatoes aside. If the sweet potatoes were cooked previously and are cool, then warm them up on the stovetop or in the microwave.

2

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, add the black beans, cumin, chili powder, and salt-free seasoning. Heat the beans for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3

To assemble the tacos: First spread a layer of sweet potatoes, about 1/4 cup across the center of a lettuce cup or romaine leaf. Add about 1/4 cup of the black beans over the sweet potatoes. Top with diced tomatoes, avocado, and a squeeze of lime juice. Enjoy!

If you want the cabbage cups to be a little bit softer and warmer, layer the sweet potato into the cabbage cups and then microwave them for just 30 seconds. Then continue filling the cups with the other toppings.
