Sweet Potato Rolled Tacos
These Sweet Potato Rolled Tacos are filled with mashed sweet potatoes, pinto beans & seasonings. Wrapped in corn tortillas and cooked until crispy!
I have always been a fan of potato tacos – but these Sweet Potato Rolled Tacos are on another level. The sweet potato is boiled until tender, then combined with pinto beans and dry seasonings. This makes the filling, which is then rolled up in corn tortillas and air fried (or baked) until crispy. I served these up with chipotle yogurt sauce, but they can be eaten with any of your favorite salsas or sauces!
How to Make the Filling
The filling for these rolled tacos comes together super quick. Peel and cube a sweet potato. Then add it to a pot with water and boil until tender. Drain and allow to cool for a couple of minutes.
Transfer the sweet potatoes to a mixing bowl. Smash with a fork, then stir in drained pinto beans and dry seasonings. Give this a good mix and you are ready to go.
Time to Assemble
Heat your corn tortillas – don’t skip this step, it will make the tortillas easier to work with and less likely to break. Brush one side of a tortilla with oil, flip and add the filling. Roll up and place seam side down in an air fryer basket (or a baking sheet if using the oven).
Cook in the air fryer for 8 minutes, flip and cook for another 3-5 minutes. I like my rolled tacos extra crispy, but cook them to your liking.
To serve top with your favorite toppings, dip in your favorite sauces and enjoy. The leftovers are so good reheated in the air fryer!

Rene, I love all your recipes and have tried many, all with great success. Correct me if I’m wrong but do you not ever use vegan cheese? If you do, what brand is to your liking?
Any tips for preventing the tortillas from breaking while rolling? Do you microwave them first to make them more pliable? Thanks!
Yes! I wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave for 1 minute!
Hi! Thanks for posting this recipe. Can you please tell the corn tortillas brand that you used in this recipe?
I usually use Mission – they are easy to find and all of their tortillas are vegan-friendly!
