    Diane G.'s Note:

    posted in response to a request. filling is almost the same as the one for my vegetarian chile rellenos, though a bit milder because the spices don't have to compete with the biting heat of the serrano or anaheim chiles.

    1. 1
      Combine refried beans, mashed sweet potatoes, shredded cheese, minced onion, minced chiles and spices and mix well.
    2. 2
      Heat tortillas one at a time very briefly (just a few seconds or so) in frying pan with no oil to soften and then move to a basket or tortilla keeper lined with a damp towel to keep soft until you are ready to use.
    3. 3
      Place a large Tablespoon or so (when rolled up, each one is about 1 inch wide) of mixture in center of each small tortilla (Filling should not come too close to the ends, or it will fall out).
    4. 4
      Roll up tortilla around bean/sweet potato mixture and secure with a wooden toothpick.
    5. 5
      Fry in canola oil one or two at a time for 3 to 5 minutes each until golden brown and crisp.
    6. 6
      Drain on paper toweling for a few moments before serving.
    7. 7
      Serve with your favorite salsa and sour cream or guacamole.
    8. 8
      These can be frozen and reheated on a baking sheet in 350 degree fahrenheit oven for 10-15 minutes.

      Really yummy! I used what I had on hand and used lentils that I seasoned and whipped in the food processor, baked a sweet potato and then followed the recipe from there. I wanted some extra flavor after tasting the mix, so I added a teaspoon of southwest seasoning to get the taste I was looking for and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing this easy and flexible recipe.
