COURSE: Main Course


▢2½ -3 cups chopped sweet potatoes (about 1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes)
▢1 cup chopped carrots (about 3 medium carrots)
▢3 cloves garlic, minced
▢1 cup chopped red onion
▢1½ cups cooked black beans
▢1 teaspoon chili powder
▢½ teaspoon onion powder
▢½ teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika
▢½ teaspoon ground turmeric
▢¼ teaspoon black pepper
▢12-14 small corn tortillas
Cashew Cream (optional)
▢Avocado (optional)

  1. Boil the potatoes and carrots in 3-4 cups water until soft. Drain the water off. Mash the potatoes and carrots until reaches desired consistency. Feel free to add a splash of unsweetened soy milk or water for a smoother texture.
  2. In a pan, sauté the garlic and onion with 2-3 tablespoons of water. Add the spices and cook until the onions are translucent. Stir in the cooked beans.
  3. In a bowl, combine the potato and carrot mixture with the black beans mixture. Stir together.
  4. Preheat the oven 425F or feel free to use an air fryer with a bake setting.
  5. Place a small scoop of the potato and bean mixture on to a tortilla, spread it out, and then roll tightly. Place the seam-side of the tortilla down on a baking sheet lined with a silicon mat or parchment paper (or an air fryer basket). Repeat this process for the remaining tortillas.
  6. Bake the tortillas for about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Prepare the Cashew Cream, if desired. Thin it out a bit to drizzle on top of the Taquitos or use it as a dip. Optional to top with diced avocado. Enjoy!
