  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sweet potatoes and poblanos. Drizzle over olive oil and add the McCormick® Original Taco Seasoning packet. Mix together.
  3. Spread the vegetables in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and roast for 25 minutes, stirring halfway, until soft and browned.
  4. Meanwhile, make the pickled onions: Add the onion to a medium heatproof bowl.
  5. Add the water, vinegar, and sugar to a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
  6. Pour the pickling liquid over the onion to submerge. Let cool.
  7. Make the avocado crema: Add the avocado, yogurt, salt, and lime juice to a blender or food processor, and blend on high speed until smooth.
  8. When the vegetables have finished roasting, remove from the oven and immediately transfer to a large bowl, then toss with the black beans.
  9. To assemble the tacos, spread 1–2 tablespoons of avocado crema in the center of a warm tortilla and top with about ⅓ cup of the roasted sweet potato mixture, 1 tablespoon pickled onions, ½ tablespoon crumbled Cotija cheese, and a small bunch of microgreens. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  10. Enjoy!
