Recipe #9 - Sweet Potato Burritos

These sound fantastic - I hope they are!

1 tsp. vegetable oil
1/2 onion
1 clove of garlic minced finely
1 can of kidney beans - drained
about a cup of water
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
a pinchie or teo of cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp. of soy sauce
about 2 cups of cooked and mooshed sweet potatoes
4 or so tortillas of your choosing - I'm goin' whole wheat
shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Heat oil in a skillet and saute onion and garlic until soft and happy. Stir in the beans and smoosh them. Stir in water gradually and heat until it's warm. Remove from heat. Stir in chili powder, cumin, mustard and soy sauce.
Divide bean mixture and smooshed potatoes into the tortillas and sprinkle some cheese in there. Burrito-fy them. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Will I make them again? Tune in tomorrow for the result!
The verdict on these was: Good, but not incredible. Small child was not super amused, but, surprisingly, spouse was complimentary.

Off to Florida for a faculty retreat and graduation, then I've gotta fit in ONE more before February to stay on track!

  1. Interesting combo... I've had potatoes in my tacos before (yum!) but never sweet potatoes. Gonna have to try them. You are totally on track -- hope you have fun in Florida!
