1.  in a medium bowl, toss sweet potato, onion, taco seasoning and enough olive oil. stir to coat well. spread mixture out on a large baking sheet.
2.  roast at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring half-way through the cook time, and adding more olive oil if necessary.
3.  toss black beans and cilantro with roasted vegetables and scoop into tortillas with favorite toppings. roll to seal burritos and grill if desired.
