SWEET POTATO AND BLACK BEAN BURRITOS
Makes 4 servings.

These burritos are yummy, easy to make, contain no meat just veggies, hope you enjoy them like we did.

1/2 head lettuce, sliced into thick strips
2 tbs low fat sour cream
6 oz Monterey Jack cheese, coarsely grated
1 tbs chopped chipotle peppers in adobo
Salt and Pepper
1 sweet potato, peeled, cut into pieces
2 tbs lime juice, plus wedges
4 flour tortillas
1 bunch spinach, thick stems discarded, leaves coarsely chopped
15.5 oz can black beans, rinsed
1 onion, half chopped, half thinly sliced
2 tbs olive or vegetable oil

Heat 1 tbs oil in a skillet. Add sweet potato, chopped onion and 1/2 tsp salt and cook covered until tender, 12 min. Add beans and chipotles and cook 2 min. Add spinach and cook tossing until it begins to wilt, 2 min. Divide cheese and potato bean mixture among tortillas and roll up to form burritos. Wipe out skillet and heat. Cook burritos seam side down first until golden brown 3 min. per side. In a bowl, whisk together sour cream, lime juice, remaining oil, and 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Add lettuce and sliced onions and toss to coat. SERVE WITH BURRITOS AND LIME WEDGES, IF DESIRED...

PEG’S NOTE: I found the chipotle peppers very hot…so I cut them open and discarded some of the seeds

Zana's Note: I didn't fine the chipotle peppers very hot, so added some more heat with some diced scotch bonnets. LOL
