Sweet Potato & Black Bean Flautas

🔪 Prep Time: 15 minutes

🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes

🕒Total Time: 30 minutes

🍴Serving Size: Makes 8


  • 8 Cassava Flour Tortillas (@sietefoods)⁠

  • 1 small Sweet Potato, cubed⁠

  • 1/2 15oz can Black Beans⁠

  • 1/4 small Red Onion, cubed⁠

  • 1 Mini Sweet Pepper, cubed⁠

  • 1/4 Jalapeno, cubed⁠

  • Handful or 2 Frozen Corn⁠

  • 2-3 cloves Garlic, minced⁠

  • 1.5 tbsp Spicy Taco Seasoning (@sietefoods)⁠

  • 1/4 cup Green Chile Enchilada Sauce (@sietefoods)⁠

  • Mexican Shredded Cheese (@wholefoods)⁠

  • Avocado Oil (@primalkitchenfoods)⁠

  • Salt & Pepper⁠

  • Fresh Lime⁠

  • Fresh Cilantro, chopped⁠


  1. Prep all of your veggies. Microwave your potato for 2-3 minutes so it's soft (poke a few holes before). Saute the onion, pepper, jalapeno, and garlic first for 2-3 minutes in avocado oil.⁠

  2. Then add in the sweet potato, beans, and corn. Cook for another 2-3 minutes (until frozen corn has broken down).⁠

  3. Season with salt, pepper, and your taco seasoning. Mix and then add in your enchilada sauce. Cook for 3-4 minutes before setting aside.⁠

  4. Microwave your tortillas for roughly 30 seconds. I keep them frozen so this will help soften them but keep them from breaking when you roll them.⁠

  5. Place a cast iron skillet in medium heat with a thin layer of avocado oil.⁠

  6. Take each tortilla and add a line of cheese to one end. Add in your filling, then just a bit more cheese. Tightly wrap and place in your skillet, seam down.⁠

  7. Let it sit for roughly a minute until brown, then flip. Repeat for all your tortillas!⁠

  8. Top with avocado (mine were too hard so topped with spicy green salsa), pico, freshly squeezed lime, and cilantro 🔥⁠

Notes & Tips:

  • Be sure not to over-stuff your flautas otherwise the filling will fall out when cooking!

  • If you have leftovers, save the filling in an air-tight container and then cook fresh with tortillas.
