Paco’s Tacos Fiesta De Camotes event

Taco Tuesday at Paco’s is legendary. I’m not sure what’s in the chips and salsa, but I ate two baskets by myself when I went in.

This was no ordinary Taco Tuesday though. This was “Fiesta de Camotes” which celebrates the one and only sweet potato in Hispanic dishes. I grew up going to the Sweet Potato Festival in Tabor City, NC. Sweet potatoes or “yams” as we call them were a staple in our Southern foodie diet, and there is a special place in my heart for sweet potato pie, fries, baked sweet potatoes, sweet potato casserole, you name it.

Paco’s is celebrating Fiesta de Camotes with an incredible sweet potato dish- tacos con papas dulce. It’s full of savory roasted veggies- red and green bell peppers, squash, onion,  corn, black beans, crema sauce, cabbage and of course, sweet potatoes. Add rice and your choice of refried or black beans on the side and you’re in for a treat. It’s served with fresh limes, and the juice adds a zing of refreshing goodness to the taco and the veggie coleslaw. Look at all the colors!

It is super filling, and you feel the health radiating throughout your body from all the vitamins the veggies provide. It is super duper delicious, and is available for the month of September for the Fiesta de Camotes!

For your next Taco Tuesday, aka next week, I am telling you to go to Paco’s to get these amazing tacos. Thank you again Paco’s for a fun evening!


~ “Fiesta de Camotes” is a promotion of the NC Sweet Potato Commission and was funded through the USDA Specialty Crop block grant program~
