Sweet Potato Burritos

My friend Michelle shared this recipe with me years ago. She originally made it as a filling for quesadillas, but since I no longer eat cheese I decided to turn it into a burrito. If you’re into Daiya cheese, that might be pretty tasty, too.


  • 4 cups sweet potato
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 of an onion, diced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • pinch of cayenne
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • 1 large tomato, diced


Step 1

Saute the onions and garlic in vegetable oil until the onions are translucent.

Step 2

Add grated sweet potatoes, chili powder, cumin and cayenne and let cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid sticking. When the sweet potato is tender, add salt and pepper and remove from heat.

Step 3

Add 1/4 filling to each tortilla, then add avocado and tomato and wrap it up.
