• 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1” cubes
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • (1) 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup corn kernels (1 ear of fresh corn or frozen)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 soft taco size tortillas
  • 1 batch 10 Minute Homemade Enchilada Sauce or store bought
  • 1.5 cups grated cheese (I used Mexican blend)
  • Chopped fresh cilantro and avocado, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13” baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the spices and cook for 30 seconds, then add the sweet potato. Saute for 1 minute, then add the water and cook covered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat a bit if the pan becomes too hot. Stir in the black beans and corn and cook for 5 minutes more or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat.
  3. Fill each tortilla with about ½ cup of filling and top with a bit of enchilada sauce and cheese. Roll up the tortillas and place in the prepared baking dish and top with the remaining enchilada sauce and cheese. Cook for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly and golden.
  4. Serve with chopped fresh cilantro and avocado if desired, and enjoy!
