Recipe 3 – Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

If you’re looking for a delicious, comforting meal that’s full of flavour and nutrition, then look no further than sweet potato and black bean enchiladas. This recipe is incredibly easy to make and has just the right amount of heat to tantalise your taste buds.

The main components of this dish are sweet potatoes, black beans, and enchilada sauce. The sweet potatoes are cubed and roasted until soft, which creates a savoury, caramelised flavour. Black beans are then added for protein and texture, while the enchilada sauce adds the perfect amount of spiciness.

To begin, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the cubed sweet potatoes evenly on the baking sheet and sprinkle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking.

Meanwhile, heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the black beans and sauté for five minutes or until they are heated through.

Once the sweet potatoes are done roasting, reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Assemble the enchiladas by spooning one tablespoon of black beans onto each tortilla. Top with 2-3 tablespoons of sweet potatoes and roll up. Place the rolled tortillas into a 9×13 baking dish and pour the enchilada sauce over top. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling.

Enjoy your sweet potato and black bean enchiladas with your favourite toppings! Some tasty options include diced red onion, jalapenos, cilantro, lime wedges, and sour cream. Enjoy!
