In a large skillet place olive oil, onions, and sweet potatoes.

Add black beans (drain liquid into sink & rinse),  garlic, salt and pepper. Continue cooking over medium heat for 7-8 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are cooked through.

When done heat soft corn tortillas in a toaster or skillet on a low heat setting so they stay soft (soft is easier to digest>
