The kids want taco night…again! The husband and I are kind of sick of tacos. I don’t want to make two dinners sooooo, what to do? All moms have been in this situation I’m sure. Here’s my solution…Taco Loaded Sweet Potato Wedges!

Same ingredients, only difference is give the kids tortillas and BAM, everyone is happy 🙂

How to Make Taco Loaded Sweet Potato Wedges

Before you start browning up your taco meat and getting out your other taco toppings, just slice up two sweet potatoes and brush with olive oil, cumin, chili powder, cinnamon, kosher salt and pepper.

Bake the sweet potato wedges at 425 for 20-25 minutes, turning half way through.

They get crispy and golden brown just like this.

I could eat them just like this as a side dish, but here comes the fun part…the toppings!

We just put taco meat, corn, sour cream, Cotija cheese, jalapenos, cilantro, pickled red onions ,and lime wedges.

I was thinking black beans and avocados would have been delicious too. Topping possibilities are endless, really.

Obviously you’ll need a fork, and make sure you scoop up all the goodness in each bite! Not a whole lot of extra work and everyone is happy.

Kids have their boring tacos and we get to eat Taco Loaded Sweet Potato Wedges!
