Prep Time: 14-17 min

Serves: 3


  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 medium bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 lb. chorizo
  • 8 taco size tortillas
  • 1 (15 oz.) can enchilada sauce
  • 1½ c. shredded cheese


  • Peel the sweet potato and cut into a half inch cubes. Remove the stem and seeds from the pepper and also dice into half inch pieces. Mince the garlic.
  • In a large skillet, cook the sweet potato, pepper and garlic in olive oil, over medium heat until they begin to soften (about 10 minutes).
  • Squeeze the chorizo out of it’s casing into the skillet. Break up the meat and cook until thoroughly browned (about 5 minutes).
  • Spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray and preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Scoop about ¾ cup of the chorizo sweet potato filling into each tortilla. Fold in the ends and then roll the tortilla up around the filling.
  • Place the filled and rolled tortillas in the baking dish. They should fill the dish and fit tightly against each other to prevent unrolling.
  • Pour the enchilada sauce over the rolled tortillas and top with shredded cheese. Bake in the oven until the edges begin to bubble (about 20 minutes).
  • Serve hot.
