Sweet Potato Burritos

This sounds weird, but these are great! My sister-in-law told us about this recipe, so tonight we gave it a try. She found this recipe in an old Texas ward recipe book. It's very cheap (approx $5 for 2.5 meals) and healthy! I liked it a lot, but my husband thought there wasn't enough spice. Next time I might add a little more spice for him.

Sweet Potato Burritos
1 T Vegetable oil                                                                             
1 onion chopped                                                                           
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups canned black beans, drained and rinsed (4 cans)
3 T chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
4 tsp prepared mustard
3 T soy sauce
4 C sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed (3-4 microwaved for 7+ minutes, take the skins off, and mashed)
12 (10 inch) flour tortillas, warmed (We used the smaller ones)
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese (We used mozzarella. Delicious.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Heat oil in medium skillet, and saute onion and garlic until soft.  Stir in beans and heat until warm.  Remove from heat and stir in chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper and soy sauce.  Add just enough water so that sauces dissolve.
Divide bean mixture and mash sweet potatoes evenly between the warm flour tortillas.  Top with cheese. Fold up tortillas burrito style and bake or freeze.  Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes in preheated oven and serve.
