Happy Friday, friends!
I’m comin’ at you with a reeeeally yummy recipe today. It’s from Hello Fresh, which I’m not a member of, but I’ve been on the fence about joining. My friend Josh (who does subscribe to their service) came over and made it for us a while back. It’s their sweet potato and black bean tacos, and the avocado crema is to die for!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make enough to serve 4:

Because they were so good, I made them again the other day. Here are the steps I followed from Hello Fresh’s website:
Wash and dry all the produce and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut the sweet potato(s) into ½-inch cubes. Toss diced sweet potato on a baking sheet with 1 TBSP olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast until tender and lightly browned, 15-20 minutes.
After that, halve, peel, and dice the (yellow) onion, pick cilantro leaves off stems, and grate the garlic.
Next, drain and rinse half a can of black beans, and zest and halve the lime.
Then, Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in large pan over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook until softened (5-6 minutes) tossing occasionally. Season everything with salt and pepper, and add the garlic and black beans. Toss until fragrant and warmed through. (3-4 minutes)
Next, wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and warm them in oven, 5 minutes. Then, toss roasted sweet potatoes, honey, cumin, and juice of ½ a lime into the pan with the garlic/bean/onion mix and cook until liquid is mostly evaporated, 2-3 minutes. Last but not least, season with salt and pepper.
For the avocado crema, halve and pit the avocados. Scoop out flesh from peel with a spoon. Cut one half into thin slices and set aside. Use a fork to mash the other avocado half with sour cream, juice of ½ a lime, and lime zest, and then season with salt and pepper.
Spread avocado crema onto tortillas, then top each with the sweet potato filling, avocado slices, and cilantro leaves.

Definitely one of the yummiest things I’ve eaten in a while!
