Ingredients
  

Habanero Sweet Potato

  • 2 large sweet potatoes chopped into 1cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp habanero sauce

Chipotle Corn

  • 2 corn cobs
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 red pepper finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tbsp chipotle sauce
  • 1 tbsp Greek yoghurt

Pickled Onions

  • 1 red onion finely sliced
  • 30 ml red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Chimichurri

  • 120 ml olive oil
  • 30 ml red wine vinegar
  • A large handful flat-leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 2 small red chillis finely chopped
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

Other ingredients

  • 8 corn tortillas
  • A little fresh coriander finely chopped
  • lime wedges

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F. Toss the sweet potato in oil, season & roast for 20-25 minutes, until golden & cooked through.
  • Meanwhile,in a pan of salted water, boil the corn cobs for 8-10 minutes until tender. In a small frying pan, melt the butter & sweat pepper & garlic for 8 minutes until golden & sweet. Cut the corn from the cob (reserve a little) & add it to a processor with the garlic, peppers & chipotle. Blitz to a slightly chunky paste. Stir through yoghurt.
  • Mix the onions in a bowl with the vinegar & syrup. Season & scrunch everything together. Leave to sit whilst you finish.
  • Mix all of the chimichurri ingredients in a bowl & allow to sit. 
  • Warm the tortillas and keep warm (I wrap mine in a tea towel). Once the Potato is ready, remove from oven and toss in the habanero sauce. Pile it into a warm bowl. Bring everything to the table and tuck in.
