Addictive Sweet Potato Burrito

It may not look good now . . . but it will taste good after it is all mixed together.

My sister-in-law introduced me to this odd combination of ingredients and it has been a hit in our family and in many homes with brand new babies ever since!


1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups cooked kidney beans or similar bean (I recommend sprouting and cooking your own beans for a higher nutritional value)
3 tbls chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
4 tsp prepared mustard
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
3 tbls fermented soy sauce
4 cups cooled and mashed sweet potatoes
12 whole wheat sprouted tortillas, warmed
8 ounces (or more) shredded Cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Sautee onion and garlic in coconut oil (butter or olive oil)  until soft.  Stir in beans and mash (often I leave them whole).  Remove from heat and stir in chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper and soy sauce.

Mix in mashed sweet potatoes,  Evenly distribute mixture beteween the warmed whole wheat flour tortillas.  Top with cheese and fold up burrito style.

Bake for 12 minutes and serve.  You can garnish with sour cream or even use a side of Ranch salad dressing.

These burritos work great when you skip the heating process and wrap the burritos individually and freeze for a later meal.
