Sweet Bean Burritos

Featuring the Sweet Potato! I know what your thinking...yes it does sound odd, but TRY IT! You just might like it. I think it's great! This is another recipe from the Dinner Diva over at savingdinner.com. Enjoy!

2 TBLS Olive Oil
1 onion, chopped (we used half of each of a red and yellow onion)
3 cloves garlic, pressed
2 cans black beans, drained
2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
1 tsp cumin
6 flour tortillas
6 TBLS cilantro, chopped
6 TBLS cheddar cheese

In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and cook onion and garlic until soft. Add beans, stir in mashed sweet potatoes, add the cumin and mix well.

Heat tortillas and plop bean mixture inside, add the cilantro and cheddar cheese and roll up burrito style. Serve.

(You can also serve with enchilada sauce and cheese on top, along with a dollop of sour cream...yummy!)

Instead of burritos, I made quesadillas. I also added a can of chopped green chilies to the filling. Tasty!

oh my GOSH! I just stumbled upon your blog and I am head over heels. As a vegetarian college student meals that are nutritious and healthy are hard for me to come up with on my own. Can't wait to explore more of your recipes!
