Sweet Potato Tacos

Sweet Potato Tacos

Hey, friends! This is Rachel from @rv.family.reno and I am so thrilled to have the chance to share my Summer Cookout recipe with you- Sweet Potato Tacos! Sharing plant based recipes is something that is really important to me.

Our family decided to go plant based when my son Shea was born with a congenital heart defect. He had two open heart surgeries before he was 5 months old, and his heart journey has pushed our family to try to eat as healthy as possible. Shea’s miracle story is also the reason why we live the lifestyle we do. He’s the reason I quit my job to pursue my dream of running my own art business, he’s the reason we bought our RV to travel the country, and he’s the reason we live every single day to the fullest!

I live in New Jersey with my husband, Jake, and our sons Shea and Cameron. We are enjoying traveling on the weekends in our newly renovated RV and appreciate being part of this amazing RV community!

Now, back to these tacos! I love sharing recipes like this because even people who don’t eat a plant-based diet LOVE this recipe! We love to eat these tacos JUST like this, but another great aspect of these tacos is they are what I call “throw it all in” tacos. They taste delicious with whatever you have to throw in ‘em.

The first time we made these tacos, we were renting an RV and driving to the Grand Canyon from New Mexico. That trip, (and these tacos!) left a pretty lasting impression!
