DIRECTIONS

  • Combine refried beans, mashed sweet potatoes, shredded cheese, minced onion, minced chiles and spices and mix well.
  • Heat tortillas one at a time very briefly (just a few seconds or so) in frying pan with no oil to soften and then move to a basket or tortilla keeper lined with a damp towel to keep soft until you are ready to use.
  • Place a large Tablespoon or so (when rolled up, each one is about 1 inch wide) of mixture in center of each small tortilla (Filling should not come too close to the ends, or it will fall out).
  • Roll up tortilla around bean/sweet potato mixture and secure with a wooden toothpick.
  • Fry in canola oil one or two at a time for 3 to 5 minutes each until golden brown and crisp.
  • Drain on paper toweling for a few moments before serving.
  • Serve with your favorite salsa and sour cream or guacamole.
  • These can be frozen and reheated on a baking sheet in 350 degree fahrenheit oven for 10-15 minutes.
