New Recipe: Black Bean Sweet Potato Burritos

My family has a deep and undying love of burritos-- especially when I make the tortillas myself. So when I undertook the challenge of trying a new recipe this week, Black Bean Sweet Potato Burritos from my Simply in Season cookbook looked like a great choice-- easy, using whole, seasonal foods, and with an interesting flavor combination. And I've been trying to cook vegetarian a couple nights a week.
I made the tortillas myself, using this recipe, but with whole wheat flour. Quite unlike store bought tortillas-- a little fluffier, and with beautiful irregularity in shape. And the rest was easy as can be, and produced something entirely unlike the burritos that I usually make-- creamy, a little spicy and little sweet. And Lily actually loved them most of all, finishing off handful after handful of the filling on her own.

Black Bean Sweet Potato Burritos

3 cups sweet potatoes (peeled and diced)
1/2 onion (chopped)
Saute in large frypan in 1 tablespoon oil just until tender. Add water or apple juice as needed to prevent sticking.

2 cups cooked black beans
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add and cook until heated through.

8 flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
Divide bean mixture and cheese among the tortillas and roll up. Place in a 9X13 inch baking pan. Lightly spray with olive oil if desired. Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Garnish with sour cream, salsa, and fresh cilantro.

And for the record, I only made one plate look all pretty... the rest were more do-it-yourself. :-)

That sounds go good. I am going to get some beans soaking tonight. I was actually thinking I haven't made my usual vegetarian meal in a while. And I can't wait to make the tortillas. Thanks for playing along. I can't wait to see what you do next.

This is one of my favorite cookbooks but I've yet to try this recipe. Thanks for posting about it. And the homemade tortillas, now that will be a challenge for me!

Mmmm- I actually have an already- cooked sweet potato in my fridge, so perhaps I'll have to try a variation on it, or just make sweet-potato quesadillas like my former roommate Beth liked to do, albeit with store-bought tortillas, which I'm sure don't compare to yours. I'm impressed you made your own- I'll have to try that sometime, too. You know I love that cookbook!
