Crafted, The Art of the Taco in Winston-Salem has joined in on the Fiesta de Camotes fun and created Dirty South Nachos, an appetizer to highlight the beauty and joy of sweet potatoes. Whole sweet potatoes are sliced thinly, fried until extra crispy and topped with juicy pulled pork, a sweet and creamy chipotle aioli and garnished with chopped scallions. It's the perfect start to your lunch or dinner before diving into your selection of handpicked (or should I say--handcrafted??) tacos. Crafted, The Art of the Taco is quick to tell you: It's NOT a Mexican restaurant. It's a taco joint.



I like the DSN (that's what people in the know call them--jk,don't do that--if you try doing that no one will know what you're talking about) because of the sweet potato chips. They're real! And they taste great on their own. They're an option as a side with the tacos and that is my go-to. But I do have a PRO TIP for you: ask for the rojo and verde sauces on the side. You won't regret it. I promise.


red means go. and so does green. just get them both.

What's Fiesta de Camotes, you ask? It's a month-long party to highlight Hispanic restaurants and bakeries throughout North Carolina featuring sweet potatoes in a special dish.

With 22 restaurants and bakeries participating, Fiesta de Camotes’ mission is to highlight the use of sweet potatoes in traditional Hispanic dishes as well as fusion dishes. Each restaurant or bakery will be showcasing their special dish from September 1, 2017 to September 30, 2017. Patrons are encouraged to try sweet potato dishes throughout September at one of the participating locations listed HERE.

Born in and opened in 2012, Crafted's big brother opened in Greensboro first. The menu is inspired by international influences. trends, fresh ingredients and diverse taco selections. Nearing its year mark in Winston-Salem, Crafted's little sister has worked itself seamlessly into the DADA section of Downtown Winston-Salem. I have been a fan of owner and executive chef, Krissy Fuller since I met her in 2012. She's my celebrity chef crush. And I crush on her food, too. Hard.
me & the love of my taco life, crafted.

Even though Fiesta De Camotes 2017 is almost over, I have a little hint and a SURPRISE for you: Dirty South Nachos are available ALL YEAR LONG at Crafted AND--



There's a recipe! Right here, so you can continue the party and enjoy sweet potatoes at home.
