Vegan Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos via @ChrissyGodwin

Happy Taco Tuesday! Mexican cuisine is one of my all time favorites, as we all know…I’m starting to think I need a food section just dedicated to Mexican! Anyway – my best friend @chrissygodwin is a whiz in the kitchen (especially with a killer vegan dish) so last time she was in town I had to try her tacos. There’s nothing like getting to spending time in the kitchen with your BFF.

There are a lot of components to this one, but the end result is so worth the extra effort. The combo of sweet and salty from the sweet potatoes and the lime black beans was next level! Next time, I might make a double or (let’s be honest) triple serving of the pico because it was that good. I also love to make extra to have on hand throughout the week with chips, to throw on top of our Mexicali salad (linked here) or my signature MWH Guac recipe (linked here).

Let me know if you love these as much as I do and what you want to see more recipes of!
