Sweet Potato Wraps

These are so easy for a light lunch as well as a great vegetarian alternative for a shower, or luncheon. It tastes fresh and healthy and has a different, sweet, mild flavor. I know using canned yams sounds crazy, but I promise everyone will be asking for this recipe!

Flour tortillas (I like the kind you cook in the skillet, found in the refrigerated section of your store, buy the cheese? SOO worth the extra effort)
Canned yams drained and patted dry, and sliced into long julienne like pieces
1 can vegetarian refried beans
fresh tomato diced small
shredded lettuce, romaine or iceberg
feta cheese

Place the flour tortilla and spread refried beans over all leaving a 1 inch border around edges. In the middle place lettuce, yams, tomato, a sprinkle of feta and 2 sprigs cilantro. Roll up leaving both ends open, and secure with a toothpick. Slice in half and stack for a nice presentation.
