Black Bean & Sweet Potato Burritos

From Simply in Season, a More-with-Less cookbook

3 C sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 T olive oil

Saute in large frypan in oil until tender. Add water or apple juice as needed to prevent sticking.

2 C cooked black beans
1 t ground cumin
3/4 t ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Add to pan and heat mixture through.

flour tortillas
cheddar cheese, shredded
sour cream
salsa
cilantro

The recipe includes an instruction to fill and roll up the tortillas (8), lightly spray with olive oil and then cover and bake at 350 for 20 min. We skipped this and assembled individual burritos fajita style and it was great. I was skeptical that the sweet potato would cook without liquid and it totally did.

I make these on a regular basis except that we make them quesadilla style and brush them with butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon before serving. Yum!

Sweet potato is a highly nutritious and an alternative for food for their valuable contents of carbohydrate, protein and carotene, which are necessary for normal development and even for the sexual development too, believe it or not. Sweet potato is really helpful for welfare and our body.
