A photo may say 1,000 words, but these recipes are so easy, they don’t need nearly as much explanation. Every Monday for the next few weeks, we'll share a recipe Made from Sketch (sorry, had to). If you make it, tag us @purewowrecipes!

You’re short on time but not on hardy root vegetables. Great news: These spicy sweet potato tacos take 20 minutes from start to finish, all with a few flavorful ingredients you likely already have on hand.

Hot tip: You don’t need to peel those sweet potatoes. Just give them a good scrub under running water and enjoy the five minutes you’ve saved. If you’re *extremely* hungry, you can also grate them with a food processor to save even more time. We like to serve this filling taco-style with charred corn tortillas, but you could also wrap it in flour tortillas for burritos or fry it into quesadillas with a little melty cheese. It’s versatile like that.

4 servings

Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed

1 small onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2 or 3 medium sweet potatoes, washed

3 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Corn tortillas, fresh cilantro, limes, avocado and feta cheese, for serving

1. Using a box grater, grate the sweet potatoes (no need to peel them). You can also use a food processor fitted with a grater attachment.

2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and cook until fragrant and starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the grated sweet potato, chili powder, cumin and red pepper flakes, then cover and cook until soft, 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Serve the filling inside warm corn tortillas with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, fresh cilantro, avocado and feta cheese.
