Easy Yamadillas

Serves 4


1 Lime 1/2 cup Low-sodium salsa 2 cups No-salt canned black beans 1/4 cup Nutritional yeast 4 tsp Chili powder 2 Sweet potatoes 8 Whole grain tortillas


  1. Prep: Drain and rinse the no-salt canned black beans. Wash the sweet potatoes and cut into small cubes (no need to peel).
  2. Put the cubed sweet potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender.
  3. Transfer the cooked sweet potatoes to a mixing bowl and add the chili powder, lime juice, nutritional yeast, and 1/4 cup of the salsa. With a fork, smash and mix until well-combined. Fold in the black beans. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Spread the sweet potato mixture onto one tortilla. Top with a second tortilla and gently press it down. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Place yamadillas on the heated grill and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown and grill marks form. Alternatively, place under a broiler in the oven, flipping to brown both sides.
  5. Slice into triangles and serve with extra salsa for dipping.
