I love sweet potatoes. In fact, I bought two big bags of sweet potatoes at Trader Joe's the other day. So I had to figure out a way to use them. I found this recipe from Cooking Classy and used it as my inspiration to make some sweet potato tacos.

I used about half a 3 pound bag of sweet potatoes. There were 11 in the bag and I used the 5 biggest ones.

Add salt and pepper or more spices if desired. My tortillas were pretty small and they were so packed with good stuff that I had to eat mostly with a fork. But I'll still call them tacos.
