Addictive Sweet Potato Burrito

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups canned kidney beans, drained
2 cups water
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
4 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
3 tablespoons soy sauce
4 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
12 (10 inch) flour tortillas, warmed
8 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Heat oil in a medium skillet, and saute onion and garlic until soft. Stir in beans, and mash. Gradually stir in water, and heat until warm. Remove from heat, and stir in the chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper and soy sauce.
3. Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the warm flour tortillas. Top with cheese. Fold up tortillas burrito style, and place on a baking sheet.
4. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, and serve. Yields 12 burritos.

Notes: For whatever reason I was in the mood for trying a main dish with sweet potatoes as a primary ingredient, and so I asked Brittany to make these.  I found the recipe on  The sweet potato flavor was more subtle than I expected, but over all these were quite tasty.  When we had these a few weeks ago, Brittany made a full batch and put the extras in the freezer.  We warmed up a couple for lunch today and they were still tasty. I had a hard time getting a good photo.
