Thanks to Sweet Earth Foods for sponsoring this post! I cooked up this insanely delicious recipe using their Benevolent Bacon!
I don’t know about you, but tacos are one of my absolute favorite meals.
They’re easy, delicious, and easy to pack full of protein (a must for vegetarians like me.)
Since switching to a vegetarian diet, I’ve been on the search for brands that are both plant based and delicious.
The day that I discovered Sweet Earth products, my life was forever changed. You may think I am exaggerating when I say this, but I’m not.
I eat a Big Sur breakfast burrito almost every morning (#addicted) and at any given moment my freezer is chocked full of Sweet Earth deliciousness!
Benevolent bacon is the star of these smoky bacon, sweet potato and black bean tacos.
The rich chewy crispiness that it brings to these tacos is mind blowing.
I’m already imagining all of the flavor creations I want to make with benevolent bacon.
It has such a rich deep flavor and perfect spot on texture. Texture + flavor are common issues in plant based meats, but not for Sweet Earth! My husband and I are obsessed.

I sauteed the bacon with fresh garlic and onion and mixed in black beans, roasted sweet potatoes and a few spices.
On top we added a homemade creamy crunchy slaw made with purple cabbage, sour cream, lime juice, and fresh cilantro.
The contrast of flavor on these tacos is incredible. My husband and I agreed that this is one of the best meals we have ever eaten!
I can’t wait to make it again. Fair warning though – your family will be fighting for the leftovers!
Sweet Earth also has a line of Seitan – in the form of grounds, slices, and strips!
With varieties from original to chipotle, there are so many flavor possibilities and the perfect way to pack in some extra protein to your plant based meals!
I’ve used the grounds for nachos, the strips for a quick and delicious salad, and the slices for paninis.
