Sweet Potato Avocado Tacos – Recipe by Love and Lemons

One of my go-to answers lately is this: put stuff in a tortilla. Roasted vegetables, beans, eggs, hummus… really anything goes when I’m making impromptu tacos. This winter, I’ve been especially into these hearty sweet potato tacos. They start pretty basic: roast sweet potatoes and add black beans to your flour or corn tortillas. To brighten it all up I make a creamy sauce by blending avocado with lime and greek yogurt. Sweet Potato Avocado Tacos 1 medium sweet potato, cubed 1 teaspoon olive oil ½ teaspoon chile powder 1 cup cooked black beans 1 small avocado, diced 2 scallions, diced salt & pepper 4-6 corn or flour tortillas optional: ¼ cup feta or cotija cheese optional: 1 small roasted jalapeño, diced ½ cup greek yogurt 1 small avocado ½ clove garlic juice of 1 lime salt & pepper Preheat oven to 400° F.

Vegan option: Sub cashew cream for yogurt. Gluten free option: Sub GF corn tortillas. Smoky Pulled Pork Tacos with Cherry-Peach Salsa (Crock Pot Recipe!) - Iowa Girl Eats.

Opposites also tastefully attract in food, which is easily proven by Smoky Pulled Pork Tacos with Cherry-Peach Salsa.

Smoky chipotle pepper-laced pulled pork combines with sweet cherry-peach salsa in a juicy taco that Ben and I both agreed is absolutely mouthwatering. These tacos were made even better due to the fact that they were cooked in the crock pot. Start the pulled pork tacos by assembling and prepping the ingredients for the pulled pork.

Now that it's july, my brain can officially register that it's summer. and since it's summer that means vacation and perhaps some relaxation. we're leaving the pup behind (sad face) with my parents and heading to LA; we've got a (non) list of things to hit up including a trip out to the desert for a hike through joshua tree, an early morning surf lesson, popping in to some of the million restaurants i have bookmarked, spending time with two people we love more than what's probably conceived to be normal, and meeting our four-legged niece + nephew: charlie, and her brother henry. to say that i'm excited is an understatement. i would love any other suggestions you all may have!
