    Not to nit-pick, but the ingredients call for 12 BURRITOS, this should read "tortillas". When I make these, I'll leave out the mustard. Also, nutritional info should be adjusted for cheese, and quantity. Love sweet potatoes, great idea for how to use 'em! - 12/23/08

    Shoulds like a yummy recipe idea! But, you mention putting cheese on the burrito before folding it. But there is no cheese in the recipe ingredients. Does this mean the nutritional info needs adjusting? Can you make the adjustments? - 12/13/08

    Excellent! First time I made these, I halved the recipe in case I didn't like it. The spices that are used in the beans taste so good. I'm going to make this again soon. They are great for packing in my lunch. - 3/26/07

    Very tasty - especially the spices that go in the black beans. I just need to figure out a way to make a low-cal, low-fat sauce. I might sprinkle a little 2% cheese on it too - calls for cheese in the instructions but not in the ingredient list. Definitely making again though! - 12/3/07

    Excellent way to get my fiber in and tasty too! I froze them individually and then whenever I want one for lunch I thaw it and pop it in the microwave. - 3/7/07

    I just know I'm going to love this! Can't wait to make it! I will make it with dry beans soaked overnight rather than canned and probably use less soy both of which will help bring the overall sodium down quit a bit. - 7/7/09

    I make black bean burritos often, and LOVE them! To avoid having the texture too mushy, I use cubed sweet potatoes and try to keep the beans intact. To offset the sweet flavor, I use LOTS of chilis (usually jalapenos) to kick up the spicyness factor. I think I'll make some today! - 10/23/08

    What a terrific new twist for sweet potatoes. I love the idea of making a lot and freezing some to use for later. - 7/7/09

    If you're looking to reduce the fat, use soy cheese. I'm lactose intolerant and LOVE the cheese I use Veggy. It's about 20 calories per slice and comes in all flavors. My fav is provolone. - 7/7/09

    Very tasty. I'm not sure yet that I like the texture. The flavors were reminiscent of Indian food; I may play with the seasonings. - 3/12/07
