From the Test Kitchen

These tacos get Asian-inspired flavor from the black bean and hoisin sauce that coats our chicken and pepper filling, whose richness is balanced by a topping of crisp cucumbers. For added heartiness, we’re serving them alongside sweet potato wedges roasted with savory miso paste.

1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:

Place an oven rack in the center of your oven, then preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1-inch-wide wedges. In a large bowl, whisk together the miso paste, 1 tablespoon of water, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the sweet potato wedges and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer, skin side down. Roast 27 to 29 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.
