Spiced Sweet Potato & Black Bean Breakfast Burritos

I put together some of my favorite foods to make these Sweet Potato & Black Bean Breakfast Burritos, and lo and behold, turns out they were all meant for each other.

The slight sweetness from the sweet potato combined with the spiced beans, savory eggs, and crunchy tortilla are a combination made in heaven.

Of all those ingredients in there, I think sweet potato is the most recent addition to my “favorite foods” list.

While the core ingredients are awesome themselves, what really pulls things together is that blend of spices. It really is one of my favorites and I use it to season things all the time. The chili powder and paprika give it a mild smoky-spicy taste, and a Tex-Mex-y aromatic feel. Would really recommend sticking to that ratio.

And of course, the subtle flavor of that tortilla just ties the knot.

    I am excited to make the black bean burritos. Your nutrition list does not say what a serving size is. Is it one burrito or both of them that equals 328 calories?
