2 sweet potatoes
1/2 cup diced onions
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1/2 minced fresh green chile

1 can black beans (15-oz., rinsed &drained)
1/4 C. lightly packed cilantro leaves - chopped - optional

  1. Pierce the sweet potatoes several times with a fork, then microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until a fork goes in easily. Let them cool a bit.
  2. Saute the diced onions and garlic in 1-2 tsp olive oil
  3. scoop out the potato flesh into a bowl, add the beans and mash together.
  4. Stir in the spices, lemon juice and cilantro if using
  5. Warm the tortillas in the microwave (wrap in a towel and heat on high for 30-60 second)
  6. place 1/4 cup or so of filling in tortilla and roll up.
  7. Place filled tortillas in a casserole or baking dish, cover with a damp towel (paper or cotton), then plastic wrap (or the dish's cover if it has one) and microwave on 70-80% power for 5 minutes or until heated through/

I served these with cucumber and radish salad: peel cukes and slice thinly. Slice radishes thinly. Dress with plain non-fat Greek yogurt, dried dill, salt & pepper to taste.
