Ingredients

for the tacos:

for the dipping sauce:

  • 1/2 of an avocado
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno optional
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Water as needed to blend

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, add the sweet potato and oil. Saute over medium heat for 1 - 2 minutes, then add water. Cover the pan and allow sweet potatoes to steam until softened about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the sweet to a bowl and return the pan to the heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Once softened, add black beans, half of the sweet potatoes, spices and salt and saute until beans are warm, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Mash the remaining sweet potatoes and assemble the taquitos.
  • Place a tortilla on a flat surface. Spread 1 tablespoon of mashed sweet potato on a third of the tortilla. Place 2 - 3 tablespoons of the filling on top of the sweet potato and roll tortilla tightly around the filling to form a small tube. Place tortilla seam side down on the baking sheet and repeat until all tortillas have been filled.
  • Place taquitos in the oven and bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the tortillas are nice and crispy. You may want to flip them over halfway through to avoid burning (depending on your tortillas).
  • While taquitos are cooking, prepare the sauce. Add all the ingredients into a blender, starting with 1/4 cup of water. Blend on high until smooth, adding more water as needed to thin.
  • When ready to serve, plate the taquitos with the dipping sauce and enjoy!
