Ingredients
  1. 1 large sweet potato, peeled and shredded
  2. 1 red chili, seeded and chopped
  3. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  4. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  5. 4 large eggs, scrambled
  6. 8 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  7. 4 ounces pepper jack cheese, grated
  8. 1/2 cup sour cream
  9. 1 lime, juice only
  10. Tomatillo salsa
  11. Fresh cilantro
  12. Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. There’s not much chopping that you need to do for this recipe, but there is some grating. Get out your box grater and scrape up a sweet potato and some cheese.Grating the potato makes it perfect for a taco filling. It also means that it will cook very quickly.
  2. Add the grated potato filling to a large skillet with a drizzle of oil, some diced red chili, and some cumin seeds. I like to use whole cumin seeds. Just toss them in!
  3. A pinch of salt and pepper isn’t a bad idea either.Don’t over cook this!
  4. This will cook quickly… definitely under five minutes over medium-ish heat. Whatever you do, don’t overcook it or it will turn to mush!
  5. Meanwhile, you’ll want to cook some eggs to make this really a breakfast taco. I just scrambled up a few eggs and cooked them in a small skillet over medium heat until they were fluffy and just cooked.
  6. It’s kind of hard to see, but I actually try to pull the eggs when they are slightly undercooked because they will keep cooking once they are off the heat.
  7. Making the Tacos
  8. While this stuff is cooking you (or a helper) can prep the other parts of the taco. I just used some jarred tomatillo salsa and stirred some lime juice into sour cream as a quick drizzle-topping.
  9. Then lay out your tortillas and sprinkle on some cheese. Bake these for a few minutes at 350 degrees F. to warm the tortillas and melt the cheese.
  10. Then it’s just a matter of building. Pile on some sweet potato mix, some eggs, salsa, more cheese, a drizzle of the sour cream mixture, fresh cilantro, and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  11. Chow down.
