Over winter break I got down with some vegetable shortening and made amazing homemade tortillas. I am chomping at the bit to share the recipe with you BUT it’s going to have to wait until after the detox in February. Please don’t cry, look, I made you some burrito guts. They’re almost as good as the entire burrito!
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Burrito Guts
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 TBL olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp chile molido pasilla (mild chile powder)
1 tsp cumin
salt & pepper
1 can black beans
2 cups cabbage, shredded
1 tomato, chopped
Place the sweet potato chunks in a large pot and fill with water until potatoes are just covered. Bring to a boil, then down to a simmer for about 10 minutes or until soft when pierced with a fork.
In another pan, saute onions, garlic, and spices with the olive oil over medium high heat until soft. Add beans and salt & pepper to taste and heat through.
To serve, scoop some sweet potato on a plate, top with some of the bean mixture, pile high with cabbage, avocado, and tomato and finish with a healthy squeeze of lime. Enjoy!
Throughout the month of January I will be detoxing my life through mind, body, and spirit restoration. My daily detox pursuits include eating fresh and getting at least 30 minutes of exercise. In addition, I’m challenging myself and you all to do just one extra thing per day to detox our lives.
Day 9 of 31: Organized my jewelry and did a shoe overhaul. Lindsay suggested I make a jewelry board to organize my necklaces. I took the lazy-woman route and hammered a few nails in the wall next to my dresser and hung them on the nails. It’s so nice to be able to see them all at once!
