Affordable Vegan Fair
What I love about these tacos is that they only use a handful of ingredients that have a long shelf life, and they’re not expensive to make! Sweet potatoes (even organic) are priced reasonably. So are black beans! You can make these tacos for dinner without breaking the bank. Perfect if you are trying to stretch the dollar to feed your family.
What You’ll Need…
To make these tacos you’ll only need a few ingredients. Making the pickled onions involves a few more. But don’t worry, I’ll show you which ingredients you can substitute. So that you can make these tacos with what ever you have on hand!
The full ingredient amounts are in the recipe card below.
For the Sweet Potato Tacos
- Sweet Potatoes
- Olive Oil
- Black Beans
- Corn Tortillas – optional you can also use lettuce wraps
- Salsa – optional
For the Pickled Onions
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Sugar, Agave or Honey
- Kosher Salt
Black Beans – Any black beans will work. You can use canned or fresh beans. If you don’t have black beans kidney beans also work well.
Apple Cider Vinegar – If you don’t have apple cider vinegar you can use any other type of white vinegar like
- Champaign Vinegar
- White Wine Vinegar
- Red Wine Vinegar.
Onion – Any type of onion or scallion will work for the pickled onions.
Corn Tortillas – I like using corn tortillas because they’re healthier than the ones containing wheat. They have fewer ingredients and are gluten free. But you can use what ever tortillas you have on hand. Personally, I like eating these tacos in lettuce cups. You could also use taco shells. What ever works for you!
