These roasted chickpea tacos have cubes of sweet potato and are generously spiced with homemade taco seasoning and chipotle powder. Drizzled with a simple chipotle yogurt sauce, they make for one satisfying dinner!
Today I’m sharing an ultra simple roasted sweet potato and chickpea taco recipe.
They’re so easy to whip up, you could honestly have for a quick lunch. Now, wouldn’t that put a little pep in your step? Food always does that to me, lol.
Why These Chickpea Tacos Are Great!
- Including the chipotle sauce, they’re made with only 10 ingredients!
- They’re on the table in well under 30 minutes.
- They can be customized to taste with toppings.
- Made with humble ingredients, they’re pretty budget friendly.
- They taste incredible!
How They’re Made
Basically, to make these sweet potato chickpea tacos, simply combine your chickpeas with diced sweet potato, oil, homemade taco seasoning and chipotle powder, like so—>
Then, it’s just a matter of roasting for a little bit until the sweet potato is tender.
And, if ya feel like it, have a little taste test straight off the pan when everything is nice-n-roasty 😉
Then, assemble onto tortillas and garnish to taste! Nothing to it!

Can I Omit The Sweet Potato?
If you want to use all chickpeas, simply use two cans of chickpeas instead of one.
Yummy Garnish Options
- Shredded green or red cabbage
- Shredded iceberg lettuce
- Sliced red onion or pickled onion
- Avocado or guacamole
- Diced or sliced tomato
- Corn (canned, frozen or fresh)
- Jalapeno peppers or pickled jalapenos (like these homemade pickled jalapenos)
- Hot sauce
- Sour cream
- Crumbled feta or queso fresco
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- Squeeze of fresh lime juice (a must, if you ask me!)
Tips and Variations
Chipotles in adobo sauce can vary in spice level from tin to tin and brand to brand. Add as little (or as much) as you like to your chipotle yogurt sauce. Remember, it’s easier to add than take away.
Speaking of sauce, this avocado cilantro lime crema (that I used on a black bean sweet potato soup) would be a lovely topping as well.
No salt was added here because the taco seasoning has salt. If you want to add some to taste, go right ahead. Or, if you use a ‘no salt added’ taco seasoning you may want to add some to taste.
Use flour or corn tortillas here…whatever you enjoy best!
Enjoy lettuce wraps? Try this taco mix on leaves of Boston lettuce – so yummy too!
Hope you love these chipotle chickpea tacos as much as we do!
If you’re looking to have a cocktail with these tacos, this pomegranate margarita would be a great accompaniment!
