Sweet Potato Burritos

These are a staple in our house, we eat them a lot and they are so addicting. And what is so great about this recipe is that it makes a lot, and they freeze very well. So, I can stick them in the freezer for another meal or for lunch on the go. Now you can see why they are a staple.

wow Shelbs I'm always learning new things about you. I knew that you were eating healthy but didn't no you cut out meat. That meal looks delicious I'll try it. Smart to only do 5 meals what a time saver.

So you know I don't cook all that much...but the sweet potato burritos are just too much fun not to try! I'm going to add them to our Thanksgiving table this year!

I also cook the same 5 meals but I thought of it as the 5 things I'm pretty sure will turn out okay. Now I can view this as my sensible time saving plan - and the first new addition to the traditional five will be the Yam Burritos.

Btw, my five meals are tamale pie casserole, meatloaf, a mild chili, broccoli supreme and a burger/bean bake. For my now grown kids, I still make peanut butter playdo as a fun extra treat.

What are your five go to recipes?
