Sweet Potato + Mushroom Tacos

Cinco de Mayo is almost here and there’s no reason to avoid delicious tacos, especially if they are full of plant power! 

I love sweet potatoes and I also love Mexican food… A LOT! So I thought that mixing one of my favorite veggies with one of my favorite cuisines should be a recipe for success, and it is!

The combination of savory and sweet flavors with the meaty texture of the mushrooms and creaminess of the potatoes will make your palate dance! This is a very filling meal because it’s full of fiber but, Hey! You can always have a margarita to digest your food!
