  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • 2 (10-ounce) sweet potatoes, peeled, halved crosswise, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick sticks

  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 large poblano pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch-thick strips

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 8 (5 inch) corn tortillas, warmed

  • 1 medium avocado, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • ½ cup thinly sliced radishes

  • ½ cup packed cilantro leaves

  • 6 tablespoons crumbled queso fresco

  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. Place a large rimmed baking sheet on middle oven rack; preheat to 475°F. Combine oil, chili powder, garlic powder and cumin in a large bowl and whisk to mix. Add sweet potatoes and toss to fully coat. Carefully spread the sweet potatoes in an even layer on the hot baking sheet, reserving any remaining oil and spices in the bowl. Bake until the sweet potatoes begin to brown on the bottom and are just fork-tender but not soft, about 8 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, add onion, poblano and bell pepper to the bowl with the reserved oil and spices; toss to coat. Move the sweet potatoes to one half of the baking sheet and add the onion mixture in an even layer to the other half. Bake until the sweet potatoes are tender and the peppers and onions are just tender, about 10 minutes. Switch oven to broil on high; broil until the peppers and sweet potatoes begin to char, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt. Divide the vegetable mixture among tortillas; top evenly with avocado, radishes, cilantro and queso fresco. Serve with lime wedges.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
