• One Pan Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

    April 3, 2013

    I’m not sure if you’ve heard yet, but Mama Pea’s new cookbook, More Peas, Thank You, was released last week! Woohoo!!

    To celebrate, here’s a little sneak peak of just one of the delicious recipes inside (I’ve made these enchiladas twice now and love them) and we’re going to have a giveaway so you can win a copy of More Peas, Thank You!

    SweetPotatoBlackBeanEnchiladase as Smart Object-1 (400x600)

    One Pan Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

    Makes 10 enchiladas



    • cooking spray or oil, to grease casserole dish
    • 5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (3 cups)
    • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
    • 1 15-ounce can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained
    • 2 cups prepared organic salsa (i.e., Fire-Roasted Salsa in a Cinch from Peas and Thank You)
    • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
    • 1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed


    • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
    • 1 1⁄2 cups vegetable broth
    • 1 tablespoon chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • salt and pepper to taste


    • 10 corn tortillas, warmed
    • 1⁄2 cup shredded nondairy cheddar cheese (i.e., Daiya) or organic cheddar cheese
    • Almost Chipotle Guacamole (p. 96), sliced black olives, minced fresh cilantro, to garnish (optional)


    1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. Lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch casserole dish with cooking spray or oil. Place sweet potatoes in the casserole dish and roast for 10 minutes. Stir, add onions to the dish and return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
    3. While sweet potatoes and onions are roasting, whisk together tomato sauce, broth, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder and oregano. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    4. Remove sweet potatoes and onions from the casserole dish and place in a large bowl. Add tomatoes, salsa, garlic and black beans, and mash all filling ingredients together with a potato masher until well combined.
    5. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
    6. Pour 1 cup of the sauce in the bottom of the casserole dish. Fill tortillas with filling, roll and pack together, seam side down, in the casserole dish. Top with remaining sauce and cheese. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly. Garnish with guacamole, olives and cilantro, if desired.

    I would love to win Mama Pea’s book because I love to cook healthy and tasty foods, and Mama Pea’s recipes have both of those components down perfectly!


    Amanda S April 3, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    I would love to win this book because I am pretty severely lactose intolerant, but no one else in my family is. I think it would be great to be able to make some of her dairy free foods and have my family be able to enjoy them as well


    Michele April 3, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    Hi! Why I want to win Mama Peas Cookbook? I love to cook and have taught myself almost everything that I know! I cook for myself and my 6 year old son. I have managed to get him to eat a lot of healthy things, but I want to find tasty ways to get him to eat more vegetables. I also want to find great veggie meals that don’t leave us feeling hungry an hour later. I look forward to finding out if I win I have never tried to win anything before! Have a great day!


    Katie April 4, 2013 at 8:57 am

    I’d like to win because I literally don’t own a single cookbook! Haha

    Yum I’ll have to check this recipe out! I never use sweet potatoes in my cooking and I feel like that they are healthy and yummy enough that I should start incorporating them into my diet :) thanks for sharing!


    Ani Niles April 4, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    I’d love to win a copy of More Peas, Thank You so I can get some great new recipes to serve my kids. My youngest has severe allergies/asthma and I want some new, healthier food ideas so we can use food and nutrients as medicine rather than pills and inhalers!


    Elaine April 4, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    I’d love to begin a healthy cookbook collection, starting with More Peas, Thank You! I just reached my goal weight at Weight Watcher’s and need to stay on track with healthy recipes … especially including veggies! Thanks!


    Steve April 4, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    kinsey April 5, 2013 at 10:17 am

    I would love to own Mama Pea’s 2nd book! I know her first one rocked and I am always up for trying new recipes and new ideas to put use in my own kitchen.


    Beth Yaffe April 5, 2013 at 10:19 am

    I would love to win this cookbook! I have developed health issues during graduate school, some of which being food intolerance to gluten, dairy, and eggs. I was eating vegetarian, and am now eating vegan. I would love a good recipe book to help me on my way! It is sometimes hard for me to find recipes that my kids would like too, and these recipes look so amazing that anyone would love them (even two preschoolers)!


    luv what you do April 5, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    I just made the brownies from the first cookbook and can’t wait to see what the second one has in it! This recipe looks great! I am bookmarking it now!


    Amanda April 6, 2013 at 11:08 am

    I would love to try this and other recipes-so delish!
