Sweet potatoes in a burrito. I, for one, found this to be a highly creative idea. The sweet-potato-lover in me thought the concept was brilliant. And once it was put into practice, my taste buds quickly agreed. The recipe itself was uncomplicated. The creation process went smoothly, with no drama to make this story more interesting (save for a few burnt and sticky fingers as I squished the baked sweet potatoes out of their skins and into a bowl for mashing). The intrigue came in the tasting. The contrast of the potatoes' sweetness against the Mexican-inspired bean mixture was lovely. And adding plenty of ooey, gooey cheese made my mouth even happier.
As I savored the first few bites, I began to wonder, however, if Mandi and I have an abnormal attraction to recipes involving wraps. Or perhaps we've just gotten into a bit of a rut with our recipe-choosing. We've been blogging for less than 2 months and already three out of our eight recipes have involved some sort of flour tortilla. That's not very out of the box, now, is it?But, I'm telling you, these burritos really are...out of the box, that is. So, as skeptical as you may be, just humor the nonconformist in me, and give them a try. Push those taste buds toward culinary creativity.
