Community Recipe from


  • 1 red onion
  • 2 tablespoon(s) garlic
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 can(s) Black Beans
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 tablespoon(s) lime juice
  • 1 cup(s) chopped spinach
  • 2 avocados (slightly mashed)
  • 8 tortillas (big)
  • 1 teaspoon(s) chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon(s) crumin
  • salt & pepper
  • 3/4 cup(s) salsa


  1. How to make it:

  2. Add the sweet potato to a saucepan, cover with filtered water, bring to the boil then cover and simmer until just tender, around 20 minutes. Drain the sweet potato and set aside.

  3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until soft. Add sweet potato, 1 chopped tomato and spices and stir regularly for around 3 minutes to avoid the mixture sticking to the pan, mashing some of the sweet potato softly so that you have some mashed and some whole pieces of potato. Add the black beans, spinach, and lime juice and stir until combined and heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Heat tortillas according to packet directions (I didn't bother and they were still great) and then top with some sweet potato mixture, avocado and salsa and roll to combine.
