Black Bean-Sweet Potato Burrito

Black Bean-Sweet Potato Burrito


 Does anything pair better with black beans than sweet potato?  Didn't think so.  These delicious flavors form the base of your burrito.  Feel free to dress them up with whatever you can imagine!  I used red onion, fresh tomatoes, and salsa.  You could also use avocado, guacamole, scallions, peppers, etc.

All you need to do to make your burrito is to saute the onion in your oil, then brown up your potatoes, and finally stir in the black beans and seasonings.

Then, you can spoon it onto your wrap, top it with whatever toppings you enjoy, and eat!  This was a really quick and easy weeknight dinner.  I hope you enjoy!

Serves: 4


  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 sweet potato, quartered lengthwise & sliced thin
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp parsley
  • 1/8 tsp thyme
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne


  1. Warm your oil in a saute pan over medium heat.  Add the onions and saute, stirring frequently, until translucent (about 3 minutes).
  2. Add the garlic, sweet potato, and salt.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10-15 minutes until browned and tender.
  3. Stir in the black beans, cumin, oregano, parsley, thyme, and cayenne.  Cook until heated through.
  4. Spoon bean/potato mixture into your wrap of choice.  Add toppings, and enjoy!
