Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

I get most of my dishes by looking at the recipe sites, but sometimes the inspiration starts somewhere else.

Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter are all good sources, but in today’s case, it was a restaurant. The Ranting Wife and I were out several years ago and one option was a sweet potato burrito. Neither of us was going to order it, but my wife mentioned it to the waitress that it was unusual. She immediately told us we had to order them because they were the best. My wife was a little skeptical, but followed the advice. They were awesome and the idea of them stuck in my head.
