Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place oven rack 8 inches from broiler; preheat broiler. Coat a 7-by-11-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Place sweet potato and water in a medium microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a plate. Microwave on High until tender when pierced with a fork, about 5 minutes. Drain.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add cumin and chili powder; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in beans and the drained sweet potato; cook, stirring constantly, until coated with spices and lightly browned, about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/4 cup enchilada sauce.

  • Place 2 heaping tablespoons of the sweet potato mixture in the center of each egg wrap; fold the wrap around the filling and place, seam-side down, in the prepared baking dish. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup enchilada sauce evenly over the enchiladas. Broil until hot and bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Combine queso fresco, pepitas and cilantro in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the hot enchiladas. Serve immediately.
