  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 8 small corn tortillas
  • 2 cups enchilada sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large skillet, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced sweet potatoes and cook until they start to soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the diced onion and garlic to the skillet and sauté until the onions are translucent.
  4. Stir in the black beans, cumin, smoked paprika, and chili powder. Cook for another 2 minutes, then remove from heat.
  5. Warm the corn tortillas in the microwave for about 30 seconds to make them pliable.
  6. Spread a spoonful of enchilada sauce on each tortilla. Place a portion of the sweet potato and black bean mixture on each tortilla, then sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
  7. Roll up the tortillas and place them seam-side down in the prepared baking dish.
  8. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top and sprinkle with more cheese.
  9. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes, until the enchiladas are heated through and the cheese is melted.
  10. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden.
  11. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve hot.
