Honey Lime Sweet Potatoes Taquitos with Low Fat Vegan Sour Cream | Low Fat, Medical Medium, Whole 30, Gluten Free, Vegan Dinner Idea | Denver, Mountain Colorado Photographer


Being on a vegan/paleo grain free diet I’ve missed a lot of Mexican dishes that have all the flavor and yumminess. So I was so excited when we figured out how to re-create one my old favorite recipes, these honey lime sweet potatoes taquitos. If you are still a meat eater you can substitute the sweet potatoes for shredded chicken but for all my fellow vegan eaters out there we love this with sweet potatoes. I haven’t played around with this recipe with cooked jackfruit but I bet it would be equally as delicious! I hope you all enjoy this recipe and the low fat vegan sour cream sauce. It is VERY sour so feel free to alter as you see fit or skip and dip these in honey which is just as delicious!
