Total time:  
Serves: Around 6 Burritos
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 Plantains
  • 2 Small Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne (optional, will make it spicy!)
  • 6 or more Tortillas (for gluten free use corn tortillas)
  • Cooked rice, black beans, cilantro, jalapeño, sliced peppers, corn kernels, the lime and cilantro sauce (recipe below), or whatever else you want to layer into your burrito!
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat your oven to 400F (200C).
  2. Peel the plantains, then cut them on an angle about ¼" thick.
  3. Peel the sweet potatoes and chop them into pieces that are about ½ the size of the plantain slices. The sweet potatoes take longer to cook, so by making the pieces smaller, we will ensure that everything finishes cooking at the same time.
  4. Add the plantains and sweet potato to a bowl. Add in the olive oil and all the spices (chili powder, salt, cumin, garlic powder, and cayenne if using). Toss to evenly coat.
  5. Lightly grease a baking tray and spread the sweet potatoes and plantains in one even layer without too many pieces touching. You will probably have to use more than one baking tray.
  6. Pop it in the oven for 15-20 minutes, flipping once halfway through. They are done when the sweet potatoes and plantains are soft all the way through and browned on both sides.
  7. Fill a tortilla with the sweet potatoes and plantains, and whatever other fillings you like. Rice, black beans, cilantro, etc. Fold over the ends and roll them up so all of the filling is trapped inside.
  8. For the finishing touch, heat a dry pan over medium-high heat. Put your burritos seam side down. Toast the burritos for about 1-2 minutes until golden, then flip and toast the other side. This seals the burrito so that it won't fall open, and the toasted tortilla tastes amazing!
