Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos with Black Beans and Kale Ceviche

by Erin

A little bit a prep goes a long way with these veggie tacos featuring roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, and a kale ceviche.

If you are even remotely familiar with dinnerware then you’ve heard of Corelle. Many of you probably own a set. I know my parents use Corelle dinnerware every day and they even bought me my first 4-piece set when I first went off to college (was that really over 10 years ago?) and they are still in perfect condition. But being a food blogger one set of plates is never enough so I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on the new Corelle® Boutique™ Brushed pattern which is sold exclusively at select Kohl’s stores. The modern pattern comes in 9 colors which are easy to mix-and-match, of which I am a huge fan. And being Corelle that means they come with certain features:

  • Break and chip resistant for carefree durability
  • Made in the USA
  • Dishwasher safe for long lasting patterns
  • Microwave and oven safe for versatility
  • Stackability for easy storage and cupboard space efficiencies
  • Patterns won’t wash, wear or scratch off
  • 3 year limited warranty

The first meal I graced upon the surface of these pieces was tacos. But not any old tacos, roasted sweet potato, black beans, and kale ceviche taocs! Due to its lengthy nature, upon first glance of the ingredient list you may be frightened off from attempting this recipe yourself but I promise it’s easier than it looks. For starters the ceviche requires no cooking, just toss and let marinade overnight. The following day, toss the sweet potatoes in seasoning and then roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the onions and beans which will be ready in time to assemble it all together. See wasn’t that easy? Lots of chopping for prep but minimal effort from then on and a happy belly as the reward.
