Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

Green Chile Sauce
1 cup vegetable broth
1 tbsp arrowroot starch dissolved in a little cold water
1 generous cup chopped roasted green chiles, hot or mild
2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp cumin or chili powder, hot or mild, to taste

Enchilada Filling
1 15oz can organic black beans, rinsed, drained
4 cloves garlic, minced
Fresh lime juice from 1 big juicy lime
2 heaping cups cooked diced sweet potatoes
1/2 cup chopped roasted mild green chiles
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder mild or spicy
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

2 to 4 tbsp vegetable oil, as needed
8 white or yellow corn tortillas
4oz shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Preheat oven to 350°F. Make Green Chile Sauce by combining ingredients in a sauce pan and heating over medium-high heat. Bring to a high simmer. Simmer until thickened. Taste test and adjust seasonings. Set aside.

Meanwhile, make Enchilada Filling by combining black beans with minced garlic and lime juice. Toss to coat the beans and set aside. In a separate bowl combine sweet potatoes and green chiles; add the spices. Season with sea salt and pepper.

Pour about 1/4 cup of the Green Chile Sauce into the bottom of a 9"x13" baking dish.

To assemble the enchiladas, heat some oil in a skillet. Lightly cook the corn tortillas to soften them, one at a time, as you stuff each one.
Lay the first hot tortilla in the sauced baking dish; wet it with the sauce. Spoon 1/8 of the sweet potato mixture down the center. Top with 1/8 of the black beans. Roll tortilla to the end of the baking dish. Repeat for the remaining tortillas. Top with the rest of the sauce. Top with a sprinkle of shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the enchiladas are hot and sauce is bubbling around the edges.
