Ingredients

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 small yam or sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 chile pepper, diced
1 small red bell pepper, diced
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, with liquid
juice from 1 orange
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
4 flour tortillas (10-inch diameter)
1/2 cup mild mango chutney
6 ounces jack cheese, grated

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat and saute the fresh vegetables for 3 minutes. Add the beans, orange juice, salt, and spices and bring to a boil. Continue cooking at a slow boil until the liquid is reduced, about 10 minutes. In the center of each tortilla, spread 2 tablespoons of chutney. Top with one-quarter of the vegetable mixture and the cheese. Roll up the wraps and bake for 15 minutes.

These wraps are delicious!

These wraps are delicious! I've made them by following the directions exactly and also by mashing the yam (sweet potato) instead of cutting it up. Yum!
