Sweet Potato Tacos
: Meanwhile, in saucepan of boiling water, cook lentils
until tender, 12 to 15 minutes; drain. (Make-ahead: Rinse under cold water; drain again. Store in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

While lentils are cooking, in large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook sweet potato, onion and chili powder, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in 1 cup water; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring, until potatoes are softened, about 12 minutes.

Stir lentils and salt into sweet potato mixture; cook, stirring and adding water, 1 tbsp at a time, to reach desired consistency, about 1 minute. Stir in lime juice. 

Spoon about 1/4 cup of the sweet potato mixture onto each tortilla. Top with radishes and avocado.
