monday munchies / sweet potato taquitos

so yes.. it's definitely tuesday and not monday. actually its almost wednesday..
BUT these are so delicious i needed to share. 


1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup olive oil
10 flour tortillas
3 large sweet potatoes
1 can corn
1 can of black beans
1/4 onion diced
1 cup of cheddar cheese
(guacamole optional for dipping)

cover sweet potatoes in a light coat of olive oil. put them in the oven (on the rack or a cookie sheet) for about 45-60 min on 350 degrees. once cool, peel the skin of the sweet potato off and either dice or mash them.
in a large bowl, add all your ingredients (mashed sweet potatoes, corn, black beans, onions, cheese) mix and mix and mix
put a lump of the mixture on the corn tortilla and roll it.
in a small bowl mix together (melted butter) and oil. brush the tops with butter & oil mixture
bake them for 10-15 min on 350 degrees.

if you want more of a crunch you can leave them in a little longer. they taste great dipped in guacamole. and if you only feel like making 5 taquitos you can save the other half of the mixture.

side note: my ingredients have measurements but i would sort of work to your own taste. i put the whole can of black beans and 1/2 can of corn. but hey, maybe you like it more even.
