    Description

    This is another recipe which our GOH community raves about. This recipe is adapted from “Kim’s craving”

    Method:

    1. Preheat oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with foil. Spread cubed sweet potato evenly over baking sheet. Cover the baking dish with foil to retain the moisture. Roast for about 15-20 minutes and until tender.
    2. Meanwhile, Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and minced garlic. Sauté for about 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Now add in salt and seasonings and stir well.
    3. Add black beans and cooked rice and sauté for another 5 minutes on medium.
    4. Add roasted sweet potato to the rice mixture and stir well. Add cilantro.  You can mash the potato with a fork if some pieces are too large.
    5. Add filling to tortilla along with desired toppings. Wrap and serve. Leftover filling can be reheated the next day for lunch in a wrap or as a salad topper.
