The Ingredients for the Sweet Potato and Beef Breakfast Taquitos

  • Ground Beef. You can also use ground turkey or chicken!
  • Onion. 
  • Avocado Oil, Salt, and Pepper. Omit pepper for AIP.
  • Sweet Potato.
  • Garlic Powder, Oregano, Fresh Cilantro, and Lime. These add great flavor to the sweet potato and beef filling!
  • Grain-Free Tortillas. I use Siete almond tortillas, see notes below for AIP.
  • Avocado Oil Spray. Spraying the taquitos with avocado oil helps them get crispy!
  • Red Onion, Cilantro, Cilantro Avocado Sauce, or Fresh Lime Juice. All great options for toppings! I love this cilantro avocado sauce!

How to make Sweet potato and Beef Breakfast Taquitos in the oven

  • Make the filling. Preheat a large skillet and add the ground beef, onion, and season with salt and pepper. Crumble the ground beef until browned. Set aside. Using the same pan, heat the avocado oil and saute the sweet potato for 8-10 minutes or until fork tender. Add the ground beef back to the pan and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, fresh cilantro, and lime juice. Stir to combine.

  • Bake the taquitos in the preheated oven (or air fryer) and serve with toppings of your choice.
