Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Potato Burritos

1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
15 oz canned kidney beans, drained
1 cups water
1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp prepared mustard
1 pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
3/4 package roasted sweet potatoes and vegetables (use whole package)
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato Burritos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a medium skillet, and saute onions and garlic until soft. Add beans and mash well. Gradually stir in water, and heat until thick and warm. Remove from heat and stir in chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper (if using) and soy sauce. Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the warm tortillas; place next to the lower edge. Fold over tightly, fold in sides and fold over again to close. Bake for 12 minutes in the oven and serve warm. Chopped green onion and sour cream go well with these burritos. (If you are going to freeze for later use, do not bake the burritos. Wrap each burrito individually in foil, and then place in a bag for freezing.)
