These baked burritos are stuffed with buttery mashed sweet potatoes, spicy black beans, brown rice and melted cheese!
Cook the rice according to package directions until tender (using the required amount of liquid – either broth or water). Drain, then fluff with a fork and let it rest with the lid closed while you make the rest of the fillings.
MASHED SWEET POTATOES:
Boil the sweet potatoes until very tender, then mash or whip with the butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
SPICY BLACK BEANS:
In a bowl, mix the beans with the lemon juice and seasonings. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the onions, garlic and green chili pepper about 2-3 minutes until soft. Add the bean mixture and warm through.
Layer the warm ingredients down the center of each tortilla in this order: cheese, rice, beans, sweet potatoes. Fold the tortilla at the top and bottom of the filling in, rotate and roll the burrito up so that all the ends are closed. Place it on the baking tray seam side down. Brush with vegetable oil and place under the broiler until crispy and golden brown on top. This took about 15-20 minutes in my oven. I serve with sour cream mixed with 1 teaspoon of ground coriander or chopped fresh cilantro!
