These are addictive!! I skip the food processor because we prefer more texture. I served it with mexican style rice and salsa. Wonderful! I've also frozen some of the filling to make them easier on busy nights.

Fantastic! Hearty and tasty. This is one of my new favs! I mashed the potatoes/bean mixture instead of pureeing and used pineapple juice instead of lemon juice (which I realized I didn't have on hand at the last minute). So yummy and healthy too. Thanks for sharing.

We loved it. Great blend of flavors. I did not puree it- thought it would be better a little chunky. Thanks for a creative, great recipe.

Tasty stuff. The only thing I would change is I wouldn't bake them as burritos. I'd warm up the mixture and eat it with soft tortillas.

Unbeleivable combo!!! I am not a veggie nut or anything, this was just plain good. I really think it would be six stars if you had ground taco meat in it as well...even ground turkey. But this was so good just as is!

Great recipe. Followed it a bit loosely since I was making it for 3 people. Used 1 large sweet potato, 1 can of black beans, and pretty much halved the spices. My variation was to blend and reheat the blended mixture, add to heated tortillas with rice. Added Monterrey Jack cheese, sour cream, guacamole, salsa and some hot sauce. Definitely will make this again... and again.

I made these tonight with a few changes and am very pleased (although I found that I disliked coriander and cilantro!). Instead of boiling the sweet potato, I peeled, cubed and baked it in the oven and I had no lemon juice. Next time, I might cut the potato in wedges before baking and just mash the beans with the onion mixture - a little cayenne sounds good, too. Definitely a do-over!

These are great! I mashed the filling by hand, and left it chunky. I used whole wheat tortillas, which were fabulous, and omitted the oil to lower the calorie/fat content. This made 8 HUGE burritos, so I froze 4 of them. Thanks for the yummy and healthy recipe!

I found this recipe in my Moosewood Lowfat Favorites cookbook and they are fabulous - possibly my favorite burrito recipe! I leave the filling chunky rather than puree it and add a bit of cheese, some corn and black olives. I find that about 3 sweet potatoes and 2 cans of black beans makes plenty for our family of four. I would have posted this myself if it wasn't already here because it's too good not to share!
