We have tacos at least once a week in our house. We make our Classic Baked Tacos all the time and switch it up with some of our other favorites, but sometimes we aren’t in the mood for a heavy taco and instead make our Sweet Potato Brussel Tacos. These tacos are sweet but salty with just a touch of spice from the sauce. Check out the recipe below and add it to your next taco rotation!

This recipe is really quite simple but it does take some time to roast the sweet potatoes. We don’t add too much to any of the main ingredients because we wanted to keep the true flavors at the forefront of this Sweet Potato Brussel Taco dish.

The fall is always a time when we crave hearty foods but we want to make sure that they are good for us. Some classic staples we tend to gravitate towards in the fall are sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, and tacos because we always crave tacos. With a bit of onion and something salty, pancetta, it picks up the sweetness and pairs so well. Phillip came up with the spicy sour cream to give you the full flavor spectrum.
