chipotle chicken + sweet potato tacos w/ cilantro jalapeño cream

Updated: May 5, 2020

I'm taking your taco Tuesday to a whole different level right now. The best part? This is such an EASY weeknight meal!! Doesn't get better, am I right?

Tacos are undoubtedly a fan-favorite, especially in my house, so I'm always looking for fun ways to spice them up (literally and figuratively 😝). This exact meal was born when there was hardly anything in the fridge and I was forced to get creative. We had some frozen chicken, a can of chipotles in adobo, and some random produce, so I went to work.

These tacos have a BEAUTIFUL color and are packed with flavor!! They're nice and spicy, too (feel free to tone it down if you don't do the hottt stuff).

So whip yourself up a nice little marg and get to cooking your tacos!


2 cups shredded chicken

2 sweet potatoes, cubed

1 onion, diced

2-4 tbsp of the sauce from a can of chipotles in adobo (adjust depending on how spicy you want it)

2 tbsp garlic powder

juice of 1 lime

2 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper

flour tortillas

For the sauce

1 bunch of cilantro, stems removed

1-2 jalapeños, depending on how spicy you want

1/4 cup whipped cream cheese

1/4 cup plain greek yogurt

juice of 1 lime

3 cloves garlic

1/2 cup neutral oil (avocado, grapeseed, etc.)

salt to taste


1. Preheat your oven to 375ºF.

2. Coat sweet potatoes and onion in olive oil, salt, pepper, 1 tbsp garlic powder, and 1 tbsp chipotle sauce. Spread on baking sheet and bake for ~25 minutes.

3. While potatoes are cooking, toss your already-shredded chicken in 2-3 generous tbsp chipotle sauce, lime juice, and 1 tbsp garlic powder.

4. For the cream sauce, place all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until you have a creamy, blended, thick consistency.

5. To build tacos, add shredded chicken and roasted sweet potato / onion mixture to a flour tortilla. Drizzle cilantro jalapeño cream sauce over the top. Add fresh cilantro and avocado and ENJOY!

Gram your tacos!
