Ingredients

For the Tacos

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 4-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 8 oz. goat cheese crumbles
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, roughly torn
  • 3 green onions
  • drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the creamy lime avocado sauce

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • handful of cilantro, cleaned and stemmed
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 medium jalapeno
  • 1 medium avocado
  • juice from 1/2 a lime
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400º. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with foil. Spread the peeled and diced sweet potatoes into a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with two tablespoons of olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place the baking sheet in preheated oven and roast potatoes for about twenty minutes, or until soft and cooked through.
  2. While the potatoes are roasting, prepare tortillas by drizzling a small amount of olive oil in a saute pan--just enough oil to lightly coat the surface of the pan. Working one at a time, saute the corn tortillas in hot oil for about one minute on each side. The goal is to warm and soften the tortillas just enough to be pliable, not to make them crispy. Place sauteed tortillas on a paper-towel lined plate to soak up any extra oil.
  3. After the tortillas are done, crack eggs into a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup milk and whisk thoroughly to combine. Add taco seasoning and whisk it in. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add egg mixture to pan and scramble the eggs using a spatula or wooden spoon over medium heat. When eggs are cooked through, change heat to the lowest setting to keep them warm.

To make the creamy lime avocado sauce:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a Mason Jar and use an immersion blender to puree the ingredients into a sauce. If you don't have an immersion blender, a regular blender or food processor works, too.

To assemble the tacos:

  1. Layer scrambled eggs, roasted sweet potatoes, crumbled bacon, goat cheese, cilantro, and green onions atop corn tortillas. Top with creamy lime avocado sauce and enjoy!
