Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Heat oil in a medium skillet, and saute onion and garlic until soft, stir in the chili powder, cumin, mustard, cayenne pepper and soy sauce. Stir in beans, and mash. Gradually heat until warm. Remove from heat.
Divide bean mixture and mashed sweet potatoes evenly between the warm flour tortillas. Top with cheese. Fold up tortillas burrito-style, and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, and serve with favorite salsa and sour cream if desired.

I have always loved cooking and baking. For almost 14 years I wrote a recipe column in a local paper in the Mojave Desert. Thinking about creating a meal or trying a new recipe makes me very happy. Often I read cookbooks like a great novel!
