Cotija cheese is impossible to find in Scotland, is there another cheese I could substitute? You say it is a salty cheese, would feta work as a substitute? Thanks
Thanks for the amazing recipe. I have some very picky eaters so it is difficult to please everyone. These tacos were liked by all. I love the layers of flavor and texture in these tacos.
My foodie 16 year daughter proclaimed these “the best tacos I’ve ever had.” SO GOOD with lots of layers of balanced flavors. Will be making again!
This is a fantastic recipe. It’s easy and delicious!
Love this recipe!! Delicious and so easy! Thank you so much! I’ve already passed it along to friends and family :)
LOVED the sweet potatoes. This recipe only took me 35 minutes. Its so fast and it was absolutely delicious.
So good! Didn’t miss meat at all with this meal!
Fantastic! I’m a vegetarian but my family members are meat lovers…and they LOVED these nutritionally balanced tacos! Easy and quick too!
I loved this recipe. My only comment is that I found 1 tsp. of salt to be an awful lot to add to 1 can of black beans. Is that a typo? That’s how much I used, but the beans were so salty I had to add another can of beans to the pan to dilute the saltiness enough so that we could eat them.
Hi, Catherine! Thanks for the comment. I agree that 1 teaspoon does seem like a lot. The recipe was published a while back, so hard to tell if it was a typo or not! In any case, I’ve adjusted it to say 1/2 teaspoon, plus more to taste. Thanks!
This is almost identical to a recipe I got from Cooking Classy. The addition of a cup of corn to the sautéing beans, plus 3Tbsp fresh lime juice and 3 Tbsp honey are delicious. I think the only other difference is some coriander and paprika to the sweet potatoes and we use feta cheese, of course cilantro! And purple cabbage and avocado to garnish. Yummy yummy!
Is it okay after 10 days? I accidentally left in fridge. It smells and looks fine . . .
Hi Hannah! 10 days is a little iffy. I find that beans only last 5 days at most in my fridge. USDA guidelines usually say 5 days for leftovers. Hope this helps!
OMG are these GOOD! What a nice surprise for a meat eatin’ fan. Thank You!
These tacos are DELICIOUS. The sweet potatoes are packed full of flavor and so satisfying topped with avocado slices and cheese. I’ll definitely be making these again. Thank you!
Made this tonight–very good. Will definitely add it to the meatless meal rotation. Cotija cheese makes a big difference.
Sounds good, but who can prep all that in just 10 minutes?
I guess it depends on your chopping skills! ;-P
Happy to see some meatless entrees here – we haven’t been cooking quite as much from the site since we’ve tried to reduce our meat intake. Will definitely be making these though!
This looks delicious, and gorgeous photos! But hmmm…meatless Monday or Taco Tuesday?
How do you steam a jalapeno….? and for how long?
Hi, Bonnie! Do you mean “stem”? If so, you can just slice off the stem from the top and then slice the jalapeno down the length before scooping out the seeds and white membrane inside (which are really spicy and hot!). I usually use a spoon to do the scooping part instead of my fingers. Then the sliced jalapeno gets cooked on the stovetop along with the garlic.
