Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burrito

Submitted by: KELLY_R

Introduction

While it's tasty by just following the recipe, try adding a little salsa and sliced avocado to these burritos for something extra special.

I call these burritos my "comfort food" as they're just so tasty. The combination of sweet potato and black beans seasoned with cumin is delicious.

Directions

Scrub and pierce sweet potato with fork. Wrap in paper towel and place on microwave-safe dish. Cook potato in microwave according to your microwave's directions. (Cooking times vary, but my microwave cooks a large sweet potato in about 10 minutes on high).

While sweet potato is cooking, heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and onion to pan. Saute until the onion starts to become translucent. Pour in black beans, season with cumin. Reduce heat to low.

When sweet potato is done cooking, CAREFULLY remove from microwave (it will be HOT). Cut in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out flesh into a medium bowl. Add a splash of milk or soy milk and mash. You may need to add more milk depending on what consistency you're desiring your sweet potato to be.

Heat tortillas in microwave (follow package directions). To each tortilla, add 1/5 of the sweet potato mixture. Spread all around tortilla so it coats most of the tortilla. Add 1/5 of the bean mixture, then roll into a burrito and enjoy.

Makes 5 servings.
