  • 4 cups sweet potatoes cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed

  • 1-2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 8 corn tortillas

  1. In a large skillet place olive oil and sweet potatoes.  Cover skillet and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper.  Continue cooking over medium heat for 7-8 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are cooked through.

  3. In a separate skillet over medium heat, add one tablespoon coconut oil and 2-3 tortillas.  Heat up tortillas for 1-2 minutes on each side.  Remove tortillas and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil.  Repeat with remaining tortillas.
