From the Test Kitchen

These zesty tacos get a smoky, flavorful boost from our guajillo chile pepper sauce, which we’re using to coat our pork filling as it cooks in the pan and also as a finishing drizzle for the tacos just before serving. We’re serving them alongside roasted sweet potatoes with a lime sour cream dipping sauce.

Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Cut the sweet potatoes into 1-inch-wide wedges. Transfer the sweet potato wedges to the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. Toss to coat and arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 26 to 28 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

2 Prepare the remaining ingredients

Meanwhile, halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Quarter the lime. In a bowl, combine the sliced radishes and the juice of 2 lime wedges; season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the sour cream and the juice of the remaining lime wedges; season with salt and pepper.

Prepare the remaining ingredients
Cook the pork
3 Cook the pork

Once the sweet potatoes have roasted about 15 minutes, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the pork and remaining spice blend; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Carefully drain off and discard any excess oil. Add half the guajillo chile sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the pork is coated and cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

4 Warm the tortillas

Meanwhile, if you prefer to use a microwave, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel; microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through. If using the oven, wrap the tortillas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack; warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a work surface and carefully unwrap.
