Sweet Potato Burritos

Recipe name: Sweet Potato Burritos
Source: Unknown
Servings: 6-8
Cookbook date: Oct 21

1/2 Tbsp veg oil
Handfull of chopped onions
1 clove garlic minced
1 can refried beans
3/4 cup water
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp grounds cumin
1 1/2 tsp ground mustard
pinch cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp soy sauce
6-8 flour tortillas
40 oz can yams, mashed
Shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Meanwhile heat the oil in a skillet on medium heat. Saute the onion and garlic until soft. Stir in the beans. Gradually stir in water and heat until warm. Remove the bean mixture from the heat. Stir in all spices and soy sauce.

Heat tortillas in microwave oven for 30 seconds to 1 minute to soften. Put bean mixture on tortillas and spread sweet potato over the beans mixture. Top with cheese. Roll up burrito style and place on a lightly greased backing sheet. Sprinkle top of burritos with cheese. Bake for 12 mins.

Both Tiffany and I really enjoyed this dish. Usually we freeze the leftovers so we can eat them later. In fact, this time we doubled the recipe so that we would have plenty of leftovers. The bean mixture was a little too thin. Next time we will not add as much water. I would suggest just adding the water until the bean mixture gets to a consistency that looks good to you.

Wait, did I just send you this recipe? Because I made almost the exact same thing last week! Instead of canned yams I just boiled and mashed some sweet potatoes, and added a little salt, cinnamon, and cumin to them. We ate them with shredded jack cheese and mango-peach salsa. SO FRICKEN GOOD!

Oh also my recipe called for black beans instead of refried, and more garlic !
