Sweet Potato Tacos

My boyfriend's ex-girlfriend gave him a slow-cooker cookbook (and Indiana Jones!!!) for his birthday.
This recipe is one of my favorites. Who would have thought that sweet potatoes are deliciously fantastic in tacos?
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsps ground cumin
  • 1 large sweet pototo, peeled and diced
  • 1 can black beans or pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed and drained
  • Shredded monteray jack cheese
  • Flour tortillas
  • 4-6 quart slow cooker
  • Prep bowls
  1. Combine spices in a small bowl.
  2. Layer ingredients in the slow cooker in the following order: sweet potato, beans, half of spice mix, garlic, onion, pepper, remaining spice mix, corn.
  3. Cover and cook on Low for 5 hours or until delicious.
  4. Pile into tacos, add cheese, eat.
