our favorite dinner

black bean & sweet potato burritos

2-3 large yams or sweet potatos, peeled and diced
1 small or 1/2 large onion, cut into a large dice
1 packet taco seasoning
olive oil
1 large can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp. minced cilantro (optional)
10" tortillas

favorite toppings: lettuce, tomato, lime wedges, salsa, sour cream, cheese, avocado etc.
for serving. **also, sometimes we add corn into the mix, and it's delicious!

1.  in a medium bowl, toss sweet potato, onion, taco seasoning and enough olive oil. stir to coat well. spread mixture out on a large baking sheet.
2.  roast at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring half-way through the cook time, and adding more olive oil if necessary.
3.  toss black beans and cilantro with roasted vegetables and scoop into tortillas with favorite toppings. roll to seal burritos and grill if desired.
*side note: taco seasoning is easy, but depending on the brand it can be unhealthy...so FYI:
-rachel ray talked about how you can make your own taco seasoning...simply spices! 
1 T chili powder
1 T ground cumin
1 T garlic powder
1 T onion powder
1/4–½ T crushed red pepper
