When it is a clean out the cupboard type of night I usually think about 3 types of meals – soups, stirfrys, and tacos. Soups are generally a terrific catch all for cleaning out the fridge or pantry and stirfrys come in a close second place. However one of my favorites (no surprise!) is tacos. These type of clean out the cupboard tacos usually end up having some combination of beans and vegetables with a simple spice blend. Today I switched things up by substituting in some leftover sweet potato for the beans and the results were delish. Simple, quick, and healthy – they are a great meatless dinner option.

1

Add the sweet potato to a microwave safe dish and cook for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Alternatively you boil the potatoes for 8-10 minutes until fork tender and drain.

2

Add the oil to a skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for 4-6 minutes until tender. Add the sweet potatoes. Cook until they begin to brown.

3

Add the garlic and spinach. Cook for 3-4 minutes until spinach wilts.

4

Stir in all of the spices and cook for 1 minute. Turn off heat and squeeze in lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

5

Serve in warm tortillas with your favorite salsa. My personal favorite is chipotle with these tacos.
