Units Scale

Roasted Sweet Potatoes:

  • 1 Large Sweet Potato, peeled and small diced to 1/2″ inch
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Smoked Paprika


  • 2 cans, 15 oz Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • 2 Scallions, diced
  • 1 cup Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1012 Flour Tortillas, about 8-inches in diameter


Roasted Sweet Potatoes:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F. Get out a large sheet tray and set aside.
  2. Place your diced sweet potato on the sheet tray, then add spices and mix together with clean hands or a spatula.
  3. Pop the sweet potato sheet tray into the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes until nicely browned, stirring halfway.


  1. Prepare a 9×13 baking dish by coating it in nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. While the sweet potato roasts, mix up the enchilada filling. Into a large bowl add all the filling ingredients, black beans, bell pepper, scallions, grated cheese, chili powder, cumin, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and salt. Give the mixture a stir with a spoon or spatula.
  3. After the sweet potato has roasted and cooled slightly, add to the black bean mixture and give the filling mixture one more mix with your spoon.
  4. Next roll up the enchiladas. Place one tortilla on your work surface, add 1/2 cup of enchilada filling to one end of the tortilla, then carefully, lift up the end of the tortilla to fold it over the filling and then roll it up and place into your baking dish. Continue with the remaining filling and tortillas.
  5. Turn your oven down to 350 F and bake the enchiladas for 25-30 minutes until they just start to brown and crisp at the edges.
  6. Top with your favorite toppings such as a dollop of Greek Yogurt, salsa, guacamole and a dash of hot sauce. Enjoy!
