Sweet Potato Tacos with Avocado Crema

Not that I ever need an excuse to eat tacos – but every Tuesday I end up seeing someone on social media posting about eating tacos. And once I get a craving, I’m just never satisfied until I go get whatever it is. Half the time that ends up with me at Taco Bell because I don’t want to cook. BUT I made these sweet potato tacos with avocado crema a couple weeks ago and they are so good!! So even if Tuesdays aren’t a good enough reason for you to celebrate with tacos, Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner! So you need to save this recipe and make it for that!

I used Manda’s recipe for sweet potato fries because they’re my favorite and the flavor is just so good! But if you’ve never tried them, they’re one of my favorite things to throw in the air fryer for a late night snack!
