This taco is designed for maximum flavour—and efficiency! We put the barbecue to work double-time: The sweet potato steams in foil (guests can smash their own) and the meat goes on the grill. The marinade—lime, Tabasco, soy sauce and a touch of cayenne—is a salty counterpoint to the soft and tender components.
