Gluten-Free Vegan Sweet Potato & Black Bean BBQ Tacos

Today’s recipe is one that a vegan or non-vegan will love and appreciate, alike. If a black-bean burrito and a street taco had a baby, this would be it. It’s also a quick recipe to throw together on those nights that you’re just tired and don’t want to go all-out for dinner, but still want something with a lot of flavor and substance.

Sweet Potato Black Bean BBQ Tacos


  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 medium to large sweet potato, cubed, boiled & mashed
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/4 cup (or less) BBQ sauce
  • gluten-free tortillas
  • cayenne pepper
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder


  1. First, cut your sweet potato into small cubes, and boil until soft.
  2. Next, drain and rinse your canned black beans (rinse them well to help prevent bloating or gas)
  3. Mash your sweet potatoes and black beans together, leaving a few whole black beans to the side for later use.
  4. Heat the black bean & potato mixture in a pot on the stove on low, adding the BBQ sauce to the mix. Add the cayenne pepper, garlic powder and onion powder and stir occasionally for about 10 minutes.
  5. Heat your tortillas, and fill with the black bean & potato mixture. Top off with fresh diced red onions and cubed avocado.
