Description

This is another recipe that 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 the baking sheet. Cover the baking dish with foil to retain the moisture. Roast for about 15-20 minutes, 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 heat.
  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 a 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.
