    ForeverMama's Note:

    A friend of mine at work loves this burrito and can't talk enough about it. The source is from a blog: melskitchencafe.com. My friend has it once or more a week, as she claims "it's that good". She has also mentioned that she increases the measure of seasonings. I haven't had a chance to make it but this is at the top of my list of "to do's" and placing it here for safe keeping. It does sound marvelous and I love tasty recipes that are fortunate enough to be healthy too.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    burritos

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss together the sweet potatoes, jalapeno, red pepper and red onion with the olive oil, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Dump the coated veggies onto a large rimmed baking sheet and roast for 18-20 minutes, tossing halfway through. The vegetables should be tender but not mushy at the end of cooking time.
    2. 2
      Let the vegetable mixture cool. Scrape the mixture into a large bowl and toss with the black beans, cilantro and lime juice. Taste the mixture and add additional salt and pepper to taste, if needed. Refrigerate the mixture until ready to assemble the burritos or use immediately.
    3. 3
      Place 3-4 tortillas on a microwave-safe plat and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 15-20 seconds until the tortillas are pliable. Place 1/4 cup or so of the vegetable mixture in the center of the tortilla and top with a sprinkle with shredded cheese, a little of each kind. Fold in the sides of the tortilla and roll up. Place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining tortillas until you have all the burritos you need (the filling can be refrigerated and used for 3-4 days).
    4. 4
      Bake in a 375 degree F oven for about 10-15 minutes, until heated through and the top of the tortilla is golden brown. Adjust the baking time as needed depending on if the filling has been refrigerated or not. For a softer tortilla, wrap each burrito in tin foil and heat through. Serve immediately.

      Very good and super easy for our Cinco de Mayo celebration tonight! Our family really loves Mexican food and this one didn't disappoint. My husband normally doesn't like sweet potatoes, but he ate these up without complaining once and actually went back for seconds, which make this a true winner. My kids and I love sweet potatoes, so any way that I can get my husband to eat them is sure to be a repeat in the dinner rotations at our house. I paired this with Spanish rice, refried beans with queso and salad for a lovely dinner tonight. Thank you ForeverMama! Made for PAC Spring 2014.
