Stir in refried beans, red pepper, mustard and soy sauce. Cook and stir over medium heat until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • 4 Heat tortillas as directed on package. Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons refried beans over each warm tortilla. Top each with about 2 tablespoons sweet potato chunks; sprinkle with cheese. Wrap tortilla around filling. If to be eaten within a week, place burritos in sealed container; refrigerate. To store for a longer period of time, wrap each burrito in plastic wrap and place in freezer container with tight-fitting lid; place in freezer.

Expert Tips

One can black or pinto beans can be substituted for the refried beans. Use a potato masher to turn them into a refried-bean texture before making the burritos.

To fold the burritos, fold the bottom side up then roll them from left to right, leaving one end open.
