Ingredients

    1 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 15oz can sweet potatoes (about 2 cups; can use fresh, cooked sweet potatoes but it will take longer)
    4 large flour tortillas
    1 small Hass avocado, peeled and mashed
    1 cup chopped Romaine lettuce
    1 large ripe tomato
    2 green onions, minced
    1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
    4 black olives, chopped
    1 cup salsa

Directions

-Heat the black beans in small saucepan over low heat for ~5 minutes or until steaming hot. Alternatively, heat in a microwave oven on high for ~ 3 minutes.
-Heat the sweet potatoes in a small saucepan or in a microwave oven. Mash with a fork or potato masher and stir until smooth.
-Lay each tortilla flat on a dinner plate. Spoon about 1/3 cup of sweet potatoes, and then the same amount of beans onto the center of the tortilla.
-Fold one end of the tortilla toward the middle, and then fold the sides toward the middle. Leave burrito on the plate with the end of the fold tucked underneath so that the burrito doesn't roll on your plate.
-Divide the remaining ingredients among the four burritos. Top each burrito with salsa, chopped lettuce, tomatoes, onions, black olives, avocado, and finally a dollop of yogurt. Serve immediately.

Note: the sodium is high in this recipe mainly from the canned ingredients and tortilla. Choose low- or no-sodium options to reduce the sodium, if desired.
