  3. Cover and bring to a boil, then simmer until tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain and set aside.
  5. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, warm the oil in a medium skillet or saucepan and add the onions, garlic, and chile.
  6. Cover and cook on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are tender, about 7 minutes.

  8. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  9. In a food processor, combine the black beans, cilantro, lemon juice, salt, and cooked sweet potatoes and puree until smooth (or mash the ingredients in a large bowl by hand).
  10. Transfer the sweet potato mixture to a large mixing bowl and mix in the cooked onions and spices.
  11. Lightly oil a large baking dish.
  12. Spoon about 2/3 to 3/4 cup of the filling in the center of each tortilla, roll it up, and place it, seam side down, in the baking dish.
