I’m a vegetarian so I knew I would love these burritos. My family however, is not. Wasn’t sure how they would react to these, but they loved them! I think the sweetness of the potatoes mixed with the smoky heat of the cumin and chili powder went together really well. I had to omit the cayenne, and use my milder chili powder to suit the crowd I was cooking this for. When I make these just for me, I will add the full heat back, amybe even a little more! Overall, I think this was a great vegetarian alternative to one of my favorite Mexican foods.

Very flavorful and hearty. I'm so glad I tried this recipe. I had a few baked sweet potatoes I needed to use, and this fit the bill nicely. My only change is I halved the recipe, and I substituted chicken broth for the water.

I'm so glad I tried this recipe, this is a really good burrito! I thought the sweet potato might overwhelming, but it complimented the beans. And speaking of beans, I never would have thought to use kidney beans in a burrito. I always use pinto or black. I really liked the texture and flavor. I sprayed the burritos with cooking spray before baking and they turned golden and lightly crisp which made them feel more special than the usual burritos I make. Topped them with sour cream, salsa, green onion and cilantro. Yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll be making these again.

I really liked these. I made it because it called for kidney beans and not black beans. I like the spices. If I make them again, then I think I might put those beans in the food processor.

This recipe was one of the best surprises on Recipezaar and now I make it almost every other week. My husband loves it with guacamole which sounds weird but is really good. You can also serve it as a layered dip and eat it with tortilla chips. Thanks for posting!!!

I wasn't sure what this would turn out like because of the ingredients, but the end result was great. Love the sweet/spicy contrast. I wouldn't change anything, because it just works perfectly and is super flavorful. I used the green onion, cheese and sour cream. My husband said it was a keeper.

I did take a few liberties with this recipe ~ First of all I cut it in half, then cut the cumin in half again, used just 1 tablespoon of chili powder, & opted out of the cayenne! When I prepared the yams, I didn't peel them, & when cooked diced them small before mashing! I was prepared to make 6 burritos, but after fixing 4 of them very full, there was only a little bit of filling left! GREAT TASTING BURRITOS, & a wonderful new way to fix yams! Thanks for posting your recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in I Recommend cooking game]

Very unusual and really pretty good! The sweet potato did not taste sweet in this, it was just a rich and smooth complement to the spicy beans. I cut the recipe back to make 2 small burritos and enjoyed them for a nice filling lunch - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008
