  • Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled sweet potato
  • 3/4 cup low-salt chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
  • 3/4 cup drained canned black beans, partially mashed
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup canned fat-free refried beans
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 cup bottled salsa

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine sweet potato and broth in a large nonstick skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat; cover and cook 7 minutes or until tender. Add onion and garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add corn, black beans, bell pepper, cilantro, and lime juice; simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Combine sweet potato mixture and refried beans in a medium bowl. Spoon about 1/2 cup sweet potato mixture down center of each tortilla, and roll up. Place burritos in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; cover with foil.
