These Sweet Potato Tacos are ridiculously easy, cheap, and quick to throw together. They are one of my go-to healthy meals and whenever I share them with others, they are very much enjoyed! Top them off with your favorite Beanfields chips for extra flavor and a little crunch and they are the best!


  • 1 medium sweet potato, diced
  • 1 can of black or pinto beans, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • your favorite taco garnishes
  • 1 bag of beanfields chips


Step 1

Steam your sweet potatoes. You can use a steamer basket if you have one, or you can steep them in a little water. Do this for about 5 or so minutes, until potatoes are tender.

Step 2

When the potatoes are done, add your beans, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, and nutritional yeast (if using).

Step 3

Add spoonfuls of the bean and potato mixture onto warmed up corn tortillas. You can warm them up in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds, on a griddle, or as I do, directly on the flame.

Step 4

Top tacos with garnishes. As you can see, I used chopped romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and cilantro. And then, of course, Beanfields chips! The extra texture of the chips really brings the tacos to life!
