Mango and Sweet Potato Tacos


Last week, as Spring finally appeared to be here to stay, I decided I would make a dish that’s vibrancy (I think that is a word?!) would sum up the feelings of relief amongst most of us for the recognition that we survived the winter. I came up with this wonderfully bright meatless way of enjoying tacos. For some reason, I have not been craving meat that much lately, in fact, I think I went about three weeks without any! Plenty of fish, and plant proteins!

I absolutely loved how refreshing, light, and flavorful this meal was, and it will definitely be going on my make again this summer list. I hope you love it as much as I did!

I also used Pinterest to learn how to make the soft taco shells into hard shells, it was so easy, and I show you how to as well! πŸ™‚


  • Sweet potatoes are full of nutrition, not only are they great anti-inflammatory, but they are high in many vitamins, including B, C, and D!
  • Β Mango is high in many antioxidants, and helps to prevent many forms of cancer
  • Black beans are high in fiber and protein, as well as being a great blood sugar regulator andΒ  helping with digestive tract maintenance
  • Avocados also help with reducing inflammation, and have more potassium than a banana, keeping those electrolyte levels high

Mango and Sweet Potato Tacos
Serves 3
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Β½ mango, cut into small chunks
ΒΌ red onion, diced, split
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into Β½ inch chunks
Β½ cup edamame
1/3 cup black beans
ΒΌ cup corn
Β½ avocado, cut into small chunks
6 small tortillas (6 inch)
Β½ tbsp oil
Β½ tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp sriracha
Β½ tsp salt
Β½ tsp pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Heat the oil in a large saute pan over a high heat. Stir frequently until the sweet potato browns around the edges. Turn the heat down to medium-low, cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, spray one side of the tortilla wraps with cooking spray and place in the oven, hanging over the edge of the wire wrack, carefully folding down the sides. Cook for 3-5 minutes, before carefully removing.
When the potatoes are almost tender, add half the onion, cayenne, sriracha, salt, and pepper, and turn the heat up to high. Brown the onions, turn the heat back down to medium, and add the edamame, black beans, and corn. Cook for another 3 minutes.
Spoon onto the tortilla shells, and add the avocado, remaining onion, and mango to the shells.
