roasted sweet potato and black bean tacos

Yesterday for dinner I made those tacos. They were sooo good. The recipe can be found in the new issue of Oprah. I adapted it just a touch. Make, enjoy, and let me know what you think! Plus they are so quick and easy.

2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion diced
1 bell pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 medium sweet potato (diced small)
1 can of black beans (drained and rinsed)
salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400. Heat a heavy ovenproof skillet over medium high heat. Saute onion, bell pepper (or poblano)with 1 tbsp olive oil until lightly caramelized. Stir in garlic and salt.

2. In a bowl toss sweet potato with 1 tbsp olive oil and salt. Add to skillet and cook, stirring for about 1 minute.

3. Place is pan with veggies and roast for 15 minutes.

4. Remove from oven. Add black beans and black pepper. Black beans will warm from the heat of the pan.

Warm your tortillas (we used corn) and add any toppings you like! We used a delish salsa verde on top.

I love, love, love the combination of sweet potatoes and black beans.

Earlier last week we had another variation with tacos...zucchini, black beans, and black olive combination. They were tasty too!
