You will need
Cut & cook the sweet potatoes: Preheat the oven to 400F. Peel and dice the sweet potatoes in 1 cm dices.
Place the sweet potatoes on a lined baking sheet. Drizzle with oil. Season with adobo spice and salt & pepper. Combine. Cook 20 minutes.
Roast the corn & chickpeas: Add the corn & chickpeas to the sweet potatoes. Drizzle with oil. Season with salt & pepper. Combine. Cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
Prepare the toppings: Wash and rinse all produce. Cut the tomato in small dices. Cut the lime in wedges and roughly cut the cilantro.
Heat the corn tortillas: Heat a pan on medium high. Keep the pan dry – do not add oil – place 1 or 2 corn tortilla in the pan for 15 to 30 seconds on each side. Use tongues to flip them.
Place the warm corn tortilla in a clean towel and wrap them so they stay warm.
Note: When heating the tortilla you will notice a toasty smell and a few darkened spots – you are doing it right! Heating the corn tortilla is important to reduce chances of the tortilla breaking and makes them taste great.
Assemble & serve: In each corn tortilla, place the roasted sweet potatoes, chickpeas and corn. Top with tomatoes, cilantro, and guacamole crema. Serve with lime wedges.
