Ingredient Graphic
  • 2 tbsp flavorless oil like grapeseed or canola
  • ½ medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 small sweet potato diced into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp Something to Taco 'Bout spice blend
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup white rice, rinsed
  • 1½ cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup canned/frozen corn, rinsed/thawed
  • 1 cup prepared guacamole
  • 6 tortillas
  • cilantro leaves for garnish

Directions

  1. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and add the onions. Saute for 3 minutes until the onion becomes fragrant and translucent. Add the sweet potatoes, garlic, Something to Taco 'Bout spice blend and the sea salt. Stir well and allow to saute for 5-8 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the tomato paste, and diced tomatoes and continue to stir until well combined. Add the white rice and stir the mixture altogether so the rice is fully coated with the vegetables and spices.
  3. Add the stock and bring it to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Let simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the flame and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. To prepare the burritos: spread the guacamole down the center of the tortillas; top with ½ cup of the rice/sweet potato mixture, and sprinkle with the cilantro and green onions.
  5. Fold in opposite sides of each tortilla, then roll it up and repeat!
