Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Rated as 4.27 out of 5 Stars

"Once you've had one, you'll want another. The recipe is a little different from most burrito recipes, but I've had many, many requests for it. Serve these with sour cream, chopped green onions, and salsa."

  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.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For vegan burritos, omit the cheese and sour cream.
  • These may be made ahead of time, individually frozen, then heated.
  • For an interesting variation, try deep-frying these tasty burritos.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

We loved these & thought they were far from bland. I didn't exactly follow the recipe though. Some spices, particularly curry, cumin & chile powder, need to be sauteed a bit to help release thei...

I make this recipe all the time - it's become a staple in my household. Wonderful! I would recommend using a potato masher to mash the beans, as this is the most time-consuming part. I also sca...

Thank you Karena for sharing this recipe. I made it as per the recipe, except, I cut the ingredients in half, as this makes a large amount. The spice level for me was just right, as I like to ...

Awesome, but I would used refried beans next time so avoid the hassle of mashing the kidney beans.
