“This method for cooking the sweet potatoes gives them more flavor. This is great in burritos or on its own over rice.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a heavy saucepan or pot. Add half of the taco seasoning careful not to burn. After a few seconds add sweet potatoes and enough water to cover 2 inches of pan bottom. (The amount of water depends on size of pan, so I didn't state it in cup measurement). Water should not cover sweet potatoes all the way.
  2. Bring to boil,then reduce and simmer until potatoes are soft, about 15 minutes. Stir once or twice.
  3. When done add black beans, mix in remaining spices until beans are heated through. If mixture is too watery, turn heat up high for a few minutes, watching carefully until liquid is reduced and thicker.
  4. For burritos, add cooked rice and cheese; roll or serve over rice.
