Recipe Notes

  • Homemade taco seasoning was used in this recipe. If using a store bought taco seasoning mix, you may want to adjust the amount of it and salt you use accordingly.
  • You want the bean and corn mixture to be slightly on the salty side if you did not salt and pepper your sweet potatoes before cooking.
  • Total time is based on cooking sweet potatoes in the Instant Pot.  Baking sweet potatoes in the oven will take more time.
