Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burrito

5 cups sweet potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
9 g (2 tsp) canola oil
3 cups diced onions
4 garlic cloves
1/16 cup minced fresh jalapeno
4 teaspoons ground cumin
4 teaspoons coriander, ground
4 cups cooked black beans (three 15-ounce cans, drained)
1/8 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burrito

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan with the salt and water to cover. Cover and bring to a boil, then simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, warm the oil in a medium skillet or saucepan and add the onions, garlic, and chiles. Cover and cook on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are tender, about 7 minutes. Add the cumin and coriander and cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and set aside.

  3. In a food processor, combine the black beans, cilantro, lemon juice, salt, and cooked sweet potatoes and puree until smooth. (You can also mash the ingredients in a large bowl by hand using a potato masher. The result will be a less smooth but nicely textured filling.) Transfer the sweet potato mixture to a large mixing bowl and mix in the cooked onions and spices.

  4. Lightly oil a large baking dish. Spoon about 2/3 to 3/4 cup of the filling in the center of each tortilla, roll it up, and place it, seam side down, in the baking dish. Cover tightly with foil and bake for about 30 minutes, until piping hot. Serve topped with salsa.
