Prep Time: 30 minutes

Makes: 12 tacos


  • 12 street tacos (yellow corn)

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided

  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1cm cubes

  • 1 red bell pepper diced

  • 1 cup of corn (can be frozen)

  • 1⁄2 onion, chopped

  • 1 cup pinto beans, rinsed/drained

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1⁄2 tsp oregano

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • Salt, to taste

  • 1⁄2 cup cilantro, chopped

  • 1 1⁄2 cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 1 1⁄2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded


Heat half of the olive oil on medium heat. Add sweet potatoes and sauté until soft. Remove from pan to a bowl.

Add the rest of the olive oil to the pan with the onions and bell peppers and cook until soft. Add the frozen corn, beans, the reserved sweet potatoes, and all of the seasonings. Saute until the corn and beans are warmed through. Transfer mixture to a bowl.

Wipe the pan clean and add a couple of tortillas to the pan. Add 1 Tbsp cheddar cheese to half of each tortilla. Top each with a Tbsp of the vegetable mixture, then add 1 Tbsp the mozzarella cheese. Fold over and cook on both sides until the cheese is melted. Repeat with all tortillas. Serve immediately.


Place on a serving platter with guacamole and sour cream (if tolerated) for dipping.
