Hopefully you'll have a moment to ponder the many virtues of this flavor-packed burrito. Consider, for example, the one-two punch of sweet potatoes and black beans seasoned with our piquant taco seasoning. Or maybe the fresh, tangy crunch of the red cabbage slaw with goddess dressing. And don't forget the creamy, nutrient rich avocado. We say "hopefully" because by the time you're done appreciating all these things, you'll probably have eaten it.

    Peel and cut sweet potato into ¼" dice. Drain and rinse black beans. Peel and halve onion. Cut halves into ¼” dice. Stem, seed, and cut red bell pepper into ¼" dice. Halve avocado and remove pit by carefully tapping pit with the blade of your knife so it sticks. Gently twist knife to release pit. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Cut into ¼" slices.

    Place a medium pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add onion to hot pan and cook until translucent and aromatic, 1-2 minutes.
