NEW CASTLE — Sweet Potato Burritos

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups canned kidney beans, drained
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 4 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes
  • 12 (10 inch) flour tortillas, warmed
  • 8 ounces low-fat shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat oil in a medium skillet. Sauté onion and garlic until soft. Mash beans into the onion mixture. Gradually stir in water; heat until warm, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the soy sauce, chili powder, mustard, cumin, and cayenne pepper.

Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the tortillas; top with cheese. Fold tortillas burrito-style around the fillings and place on a baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until warmed through, about 12 minutes.

Do you talk to yourself when you're alone?

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
