Vegan Recipe: Sweet Potato Taquitos

Hey Folks,

I hope your day is going great. I had some leftover sweet potatoes ( I am working on a vegan sweet potato pie) so I was on the hunt for something to do with them. Thankfully, I found this recipe from This Mess is Ours and tweaked it a bit to what I had at home. I wanted to share this recipe for sweet potato taquitos with you.

Sweet Potato Taquitos

I love recipes like this. The flavours of cilantro and lime are some of my favorite type of flavours. The sweet potato gave it an interesting new taste for me. Normally, I do not expect to have a sweet taste, but I admit that I do like it! Definitely going to add this to my taquitos list. Sweet potato taquitos are super easy to make and really perfect for an appetizer. I have made taquitos with jackfruit, and simply black beans before, so this is a great addition, especially when it comes to my taco Tuesday nights.

I made these just to snack on, and have leftovers for a simple meal prep. I am trying to find more ways to get beans and sweet potatoes into my diet. They are a better option than the normal white potatoes, I keep reading.
