Black Bean Sweet Potato Burrito Goodness

This is one of my most favourite recipes. ever.

It's not my creation, but it is worth sharing, over and over again.
You must make it.
Trust me, you will love it, with a capital l.

3 cups sweet potatoes (peeled and diced)
1/2 onion (chopped)
Saute in large frying pan in 1 tablespoon oil just until tender. You can add water/apple juice as needed to prevent sticking

2 cups / 500 ml cooked black beans
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add to sweet potatoes and onions 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 on a baking sheet and bake at 350F/180C for 20 minutes, or until brown on top.

Dip in sour cream and salsa ~ garnish with cilantro.

You can make any amount you want, this recipe is really adaptable.
