Cool-jams Sweet Potato Burrito

We all know how good sweet potatoes are for us. Here is a new recipe that even haters will love. These unusual burritos are made with sweet potatoes, spices and kidney beans. They freeze well and can be deep-fried instead of baked if you want.   

INGREDIENTS: 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 onion, chopped 4 cloves garlic, minced 6 cups canned kidney beans, drained 2 cups water 3 tablespoons chili powder 4 teaspoons prepared mustard 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste 3 tablespoons soy sauce 4 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes 12 (10 inch) flour tortillas, warmed 8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS: 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.
