Crispy Caribbean Veggie Wraps Recipe

“Filled with a sweet potato mixture, these delicious wraps are great for vegetarians and they’re relatively high in fiber, too,” raves Mary Beth Harris-Murphree of Tyler, Texas. Served with salsa, they’re sure to disappear from appetizer trays fast.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:22 servings


  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 22 wonton wrappers
  • Cooking spray
  • 1-1/2 cups salsa


  • 1. Scrub and pierce sweet potato; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 12-14 minutes or until tender, turning once. When cool enough to handle, cut the potato in half. Scoop out the pulp discarding shell; place pulp in a small bowl and mash. Stir in the beans, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, cumin, jalapeno and garlic.
  • 2. Lightly brush water over all four edges of one wonton wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Spread 1 tablespoon filling along one edge of wrapper; roll up tightly. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • 3. Place seam side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly spritz wraps with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with salsa. Yield: 22 appetizers.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: When cutting hot peppers, disposable gloves are recommended. Avoid touching your face.

"DE-LISH! These were totally awesome. I made them with egg roll wrappers because I read the ingredients wrong, but still turned out amazingly tasty."
