Sweet Potato & Black Bean Burritos
the cook:dara about more

Adapted from a popular recipe on I love the flavor of these burritos... I served them with a jarred fruit salsa, which worked nicely.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans black beans
3 medium sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons soy sauce
8 large tortillas
shredded cheddar cheese
chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper to taste

Microwave sweet potatoes so they are cooked all the way through. Remove from skins and mash, season with salt & pepper to taste. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large pan and saute onions and garlic until soft. Gradually stir in black beans (including all of their liquid). Add soy sauce and seasonings to taste. Simmer until liquid is reduced and beans aren't runny.

Layer sweet potato, beans, and shredded cheddar in tortillas and roll up as burritos.

Bake for 12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Burritos can be individually wrapped and frozen.
