Sweet Potato Tacos

Yum! Veggie tacos for Taco Tuesday. You get a savory base from the refried beans, sweet and softness from the sweet potatoes, fresh and crunch from the radish, onion and cilantro, salt from the olives and feta, creaminess from the yogurt, and heat from the salsa and jalapenos. You can add avocado and lime juice if you’d like but the soft texture of the sweet potato mimics the avocado and the pickled jalapenos provides enough acidity.
