This is a recipe I came up with one day when I had some ground turkey and some cooked sweet potato cubes in the fridge that I didn't have any plan for.

Turkey and Sweet Potato Burritos

¼ large onion, diced
1 lb. ground turkey or leftover cubed turkey breast
3 tbsp adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups sweet potatoes, cubed and cooked
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt to taste
6 large flour tortillas
Sour cream, optional

Saute onion and ground turkey in large skillet until turkey is browned. Add adobo sauce, black beans, sweet potatoes, and salt. Heat through.

Place filling in tortillas and roll up. Serve with sour cream.

Makes 6 servings.

Super simple but really good. I consider it one of my "mock Thanksgiving" meals because it has turkey and sweet potatoes. I put in the recipe that you could use leftover Thanksgiving turkey; I've never made it that way, but I'm sure it would work.

Here's how I cook the sweet potatoes. Peel them and cut into small cubes. Then I steam them in a steamer basket on the stovetop, but you could also steam them in the microwave by putting them in a bowl with a small amount of water and covering tightly with plastic wrap.

If you like things really spicy, use one of the chipotles from the can, as well as the adobo. I like using the adobo because it has all of the chipotle flavor with just a little bit of heat instead of a lot.

Yummy filling.
