Holy Mole Tacos

If there were a restaurant that served these I would go there every night for dinner. These are my new favorite thing on the planet. I could eat a dozen. I'm tempted to offer a money back guarantee on these. Seriously. They're freakishly good. Maybe I'll force Jen to eat one for lunch tomorrow so she can independently verify that I'm not lying.

Sometimes you stumble upon combinations - Lennon and McCartney, Salt-N-Pepa, salt and pepper - that are quazi miraculous. I'm adding the avocado, masa, sweet roasted peppers, and spicy roasted sweet potatoes combination to my greatest hits list.

For a long time I thought I didn't like corn tortillas. Silly me! These white corn tortillas from Trader Joe's are amazing - and the real corn flavor beats a chewy flour tortilla any day. I'm such a corn tortilla convert I'm pretty much an honorary member of the EZLN.


1 onion, diced
2 red bell peppers, diced
2 large sweet potatoes, cubed
Hot chili flakes
Garlic powder
1 avocado
Corn tortillas

Toss the red peppers, onions, and sweet potatoes in olive oil, salt, and garlic powder and roast at 450 until they begin to brown.
Schmear some avocado on each tortilla and sprinkle it with salt.
Pile the soft pepper/potato/onion mixture onto the tortilla.
Devour.

  1. Oh my god. These were so good. I can still feel the satisfying feeling of biting into one as if it were only yesterday.

    No really. Make these. Tonight.

  5. Geez these are just too good. They are deceptively simple. You really are convincing two meat loving people to go veggie. Hubby and I LOVED these. They are also very filling and if you are trying to lose weight like we are, this is a good thing. Thanks so much!
