These Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos are one of those happy discoveries born out of being bored with our usual dinner rotation and trying to use ingredients already on hand. I came home without dinner planned one night, and so bored with the same old same old that we had been having on rotation for a couple months. Not wanting to go to the store or out to eat, I started scrounging. This is how some of my very favorite recipes have been made, because it is when I am forced and inspired to be more creative. These recipes are also usually very quick and easy because they are not planned and last minute, therefore they are simple ingredients and quick because it is after work and I am hungry!
I suggest cooking some sweet potatoes ahead of time to have on hand for this and other recipes, or just as a great snack or breakfast by themselves. They will keep in the fridge once cooked for about a week, and will keep for about a month before they are cooked, so they are always easy to have around.
