Sweet turns savory

Sweet Potato Enchilada

Breaking norms is only human. We break norms here to a healthier version of Enchilada. The very versatile Sweet Potato comes as an alternative to using the flour or maize tortillas. What is better that we are not using the sweet potato flour, we are actually using the root vegetable on it’s own in it’s original form.


4 Medium sized sweet potatoes

For the Enchilada:

1 cup of boiled red beans

1 cup of mashed red beans

1 small carrot diced to bits

3 florets of broccoli diced to bits

1 red onion chopped

1tsp Paprika

1 tsp black pepper powder

1 tsp cumin powder

2 tbsp Sweet chilli sauce

4 cloves garlic minced

For the sauce:

2 green capsicums, roasted, peeled and pureed

1 small white onion

seasoning to taste

1 tbsp apple cider Vinegar

The Method:

wash, wipe dry and wrap the sweet potatoes in foil sheet

Place in a preheated oven and roast for about 50 minutes

Once cooked, scoop out he meal from them and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and cook the garlic and onion together till light pink.

Add in the vegetables and beans, season them and cook till tender.

Mix in the bits or mashed sweet potatoes to the mixture and cook further.

Lastly add the mashed beans and the sweet chilli sauce.

Place scoops full of the mixture into the hollowed sweet potatoes.

Level them out and place them in a dish.
