Sweet Potato Burritos

DON"T be thrown off by the photo! I know it looks like....something that belongs in the toilet, hhemmm! But if you don't give this recipe a try, you really will be missing out on a great blend of flavors and spices. This recipe makes a lot and freezes well! I never would have thought to blend black beans and sweet potatoes, but it works incredibly well!

6 cups cooked black beans (save some of the liquid)
4 cups cooked sweet potatoes
1/2- 1 cup of black bean liquid (or water if you used canned beans)
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup water
3 Tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp cumin
pinch of cayenne pepper

Saute onions and garlic in 1/4 cup of water then set aside. In food processor blend black beans adding liquid a little at a time until refried bean like consistancy. Put processed beans in large bowl and repeat until all beans have been processed. Put sweet potatoes through processor until creamy, add to large bowl with beans. Add sauted onions, garlic, spices and soysauce to the bowl. Mix well.

I use whole wheat tortillas. I spread the desired amount on the tortilla and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then I fold it up like a burrito and put it in a non-greased skillet to continue heating and creating a slightly crispy tortilla, 1-2 minutes. Super fast, super easy and SUPER YUMMY! Oh...and they're healthy too!
