If you are looking for more ways to add variety to the vegetables in your diet this is a great recipe to try.

To start, you are going to chop up your sweet potatoes, onion and red peppers. Drizzle them with oil and add the seasonings. This sheet pan is my absolute favorite. Toss them together and then roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

Once the vegetables are tender remove them from the oven and move them to a mixing bowl. Add in the beans, cheese, and lime juice. Stir well to combine.

Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add a small amount of olive oil. Once hot, place a tortilla in the pan and add 1/2-2/3 cup of mixture to the tortilla (depending on the size of the tortilla). Let the tortilla crisp and then fold it over and remove from the pan.

While the tortillas are cooking you are going to make your lime crema. Simply combine a little lime juice with your sour cream and season lightly with salt and pepper. Serve the tortillas with lime crema and enjoy!
