"Once you've had one, you'll want another. The recipe is a little different from most burrito recipes, but I've had many, many requests for it. Serve these with sour cream, chopped green onions, and salsa."

  1. 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  2. 1 onion, chopped

  3. 4 cloves garlic, minced

  4. 6 cups canned kidney beans, drained

  5. 2 cups water

  6. 3 tablespoons chili powder

  7. 4 teaspoons prepared mustard

  8. 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  9. 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste

  10. 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  11. 4 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes

  12. 12 (10 inch) flour tortillas, warmed

  13. 8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet and saute onion and garlic until soft. Mash beans into the onion mixture. Gradually stir in water; heat until warm, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the soy sauce, chili powder, mustard, cumin, and cayenne pepper.

  3. Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the tortillas; top with cheese. Fold tortillas burrito-style around the fillings and place on a baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until warmed through, about 12 minutes.
