  1. This is definitely an interesting twist on a taco!! I have definitely never thought of it before, but I bet it is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe! 🙂

  2. I love sweet potatoes, I would have never thought to turn them into tacos. This looks so good and less carbs!

  3. I am so glad to find this recipe! I LOVE sweet potatoes and this looks so yummy and different! Pinning now to try next week!

  4. These look delicious and we love tacos and our favorite potato is the sweet potato. I could make these for the 4th for the grownups and it would be good and a great conversation piece also.

  5. What a great idea! Believe it or not, I used to hate sweet potatoes. Well, at least I hated how they tasted when they were loaded with brown sugar and marshmallows at Thanksgiving. I wouldn’t make the dish, and wouldn’t eat it when others made it. I discovered relatively recently, though, that I love them – as fries, cubed and roasted, and cooked with other foods. Just about any way – except the traditional Thanksgiving recipe. I’ll definitely have to give this a try!
