Caribbean Veggie Wraps

We had a pot luck at work - using only healthy recipes and this was one of my favorites submitted by Barbara.

1 sweet potato
1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 tbs lime juice
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chopped jalapeño pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup water
22 won-ton wrappers
1 1/2 cup salsa

Scrub potato, pierce with a fork and microwave uncovered on high for about 12-14 mins until tender, turning once. Cool, slit potato, scoop pulp into a small bowl and mash.
Stir in the beans, onion, cilantro, lime juice, cumin jalapeño and garlic. season to taste.
Brush water over all four edges of a won-ton wrapper (keep wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use). Spread 1 tbs filling along one edge of the wrapper and roll up tightly. Repeat with the remainder wrappers.
Place on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and lightly spray the wrappers too.
Bake at 375F for about 15 min or until golder brown. Serve with salsa.

Well done Barbara!!
