Making the Sweet Potato Black Bean Breakfast Enchiladas
(scroll down to the bottom of the post for the full recipe)
Ingredients You Will Need
- Poblano peppers
- Sweet potato
- Black beans
- Yellow onion
- Olive oil
- Unsalted butter
- Flour tortillas
- Green enchilada sauce
- Cream cheese
- Monterey jack cheese
Choosing Your Tortillas
We recommend using taco-sized flour tortillas that are about 8 inches in diameter for this recipe.
Can I use corn tortillas? Corn tortillas are not quite as sturdy as flour and thus, they’re a little harder to roll into enchiladas. If you do decide to use corn tortillas, we recommend warming them in the microwave before filling.
Tips for Perfect Enchiladas
- Roast vegetables before filling – this helps the sweet potatoes and peppers get perfectly tender before stuffing into the tortillas.
- Fill all the tortillas at the same time – doing so will ensure that you’re filling all the tortillas with the same amount of filling and you don’t end up with too much or too little filling at the end.
- Make the enchilada sauce creamy – melting cream cheese into a can of green enchilada sauce takes it up a level and makes it so rich and creamy.
- Serve enchiladas with toppings – we love fresh tomato and cilantro for topping, but feel free to try other toppings like sour cream or salsa.
- Make them ahead of time – keep reading for killer time-saving tips!
Try these ideas for a different twist on this recipe!
- Try different veggies – zucchini, yellow potatoes, mushrooms, or a different pepper would be great veggie substitutes.
- Add meat – if you prefer a meaty enchilada, feel free to add browned breakfast sausage or cubed chicken.
- Make it spicy – feel free to add a minced jalapeno to the roasted veggie mixture for a spicy kick.
- Use a red enchilada sauce – this will change the flavor profile a bit, but it will still be delicious!
