I was sitting at home at 4 o'clock in the afternoon today contemplating what to do with some leftover corn tortillas, when I found a cooking light recipe for "Smoky Potato and Greens Tacos". Although the resulting tacos were a bit different, they were quite tasty. Cooking Light recommends potatoes, radishes and greens with fresh cheese. I substituted sweet potatoes and used lightly cooked onion instead of radish to give me the same crunch. The queso blanco was also delicious as an appetizer all by itself until I could pull everything together.
2 corn tortillas
1 medium sweet potato
1 cup spinach/ arugula/ your favorite greens
1/2 cup sliced onions
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
1 oz queso blanco
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh lime juice (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Poke holes in the sweet potato, and bake for 45 minutes. Dice sweet potato and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Saute onions and mix in greens prior to taking it off the heat. Warm tortillas for 15 seconds in the microwave. Layer sweet potatoes, onion mixture, crumbled queso blanco and cilantro on each tortilla. Serve with a squeeze of lime.
