Sweet Potato Enchiladas

sweet potato enchiladas

For Earth Day I decided to make these Sweet Potato Enchiladas. I’d ordered a sweet potato and spinach quesadilla at Green Dog Cafe a while back and had been thinking about imitating the flavors in a meal at home so today was the day. 

Besides sweet potatoes, these enchiladas include black beans, kale and goat cheese – with chipotle pepper in adobo sauce for a little heat. This is a simple and delicious vegetarian meal to serve your family – so be sure and Pin It for Meatless Mondays.

  1. 1 pkg. (8) Mission Artisan Wheat and Corn Tortillas
  2. 1 T. grapeseed or canola oil
  3. 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups prepared)
  4. 15 oz. can black beans, drained
  5. 2 c. fresh baby kale, stems removed
  6. 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  7. 2 T. adobo sauce (if you like more heat, feel free to use more whole peppers)
  8. zest of one lime
  9. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  10. 1/2 t. salt
  11. 4 oz. goat cheese, crumbled
  12. 2/3 c. Garden Fresh Gourmet Sweet Onion Mild Salsa
  13. 1/3 c. all-natural sour cream
  14. juice of 1 lime
  15. 1/4 t. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat oil over medium heat in large stock pot. Add sweet potatoes and saute until beginning to brown and potatoes are softening, 8-10 minutes. Add black beans, kale, chipotle pepper and adobo sauce, lime zest, garlic and salt. Continue to saute, stirring occasionally until kale is wilted, another 3-5 minutes. Remove sweet potato mixture from heat and allow to cool a bit.
  3. Mix together the salsa, sour cream, lime juice and salt.
  4. Scatter the crumbled goat cheese over the top of the sweet potato mixture and stir well to combine.
  5. Evenly divide mixture among the eight tortillas (about 1/3 c. each) and roll up tightly.
  6. Place the 8 enchiladas, seam side down, in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Pour the salsa and sour cream mixture evenly over the top of the enchiladas.
  7. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for another 10 minutes. Turn broiler on high and finish under broiler for another 2 minutes or so, to brown the tops of the enchiladas
