1 Tbsp Canola Oil
Large Onion, diced

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Place the sweet potato pieces in a steamer and cook for 10 minutes, or until cooked through but still a bit al dente. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook for 5-8 minutes, until softened. Add the beans, cumin, chili powder and about 1/4 cup of the reserved bean liquid. Mash some of the beans in the pan and add more liquid, as necessary. Meanwhile, heat a medium-size nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat; toast the tortillas until warm and a little browned on each side. Wrap the tortillas in foil and keep warm in the oven. When the sweet potatoes are cooked but still firm, add to the beans and stir. Add more bean liquid, if necessary. (The taco filling should not be dry, but it should not be runny either.) Taste and adjust the seasonings, as needed. Spoon the filling into the center of each tortilla and fold for tacos. Serve hot with choice of toppings.
