Sweet Potato Tacos

Eating more sweet potatoes has been a goal of mine for a while now and this savory take makes a great addition to these tacos.  They come together surprisingly easy, since you can make the salsa and cilantro-lime sour cream while the sweet potatoes are roasting. If you would like to make these vegan, replace the sour cream with this Chimichurri - a tasty combo either way!
