So nom

Recipe for the most delicioso healthy sweet potato and quinoa burrito ever:

Power Burritos

2-3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
8-10 mini sweet peppers, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 tbsp olive or coconut oil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder

Mix diced veggies together and toss with oil and spices. Spread flat on baking sheet & roast at 425 degrees for 20 mins.

While that is cooking, combine the following in a large mixing bowl:
1 large can black beans, drained and rinsed
1.5-2 cups cooked quinoa
1 small jar of jalapenos or 1 small can green chilies
½ cup chopped cilantro (or a tad less)

When sweet potato mixture is done roasting, toss with the black bean and quinoa mix. This is the filling for your burritos! Pack it into your tortilla of choice and top with a mixture of plain greek yogurt and salsa and enjoy.

This recipe makes a large lot which freezes well. You can also add cheese to the burritos, wrap them up, and bake them in a 9x13 pan for a few minutes.
