Step 2Boil, steam or microwave the sweet potato (400g sweet potato, peeled, cut into 1cm pieces) until just tender. Set aside to cool.
Step 3Meanwhile, combine the beans (400g can black beans, rinsed, drained), corn (420g can corn kernels, rinsed, drained) and cheese (120g (11/2 cups) coarsely grated cheddar) in a large bowl. Season. Combine the spice mix (2 tbsp Mexican burrito spice mix), egg (4 eggs, lightly whisked) and milk (125ml (1/2 cup) milk) in a large jug. Pour into bean mixture and gently stir to combine. Spoon mixture into the tortilla base. Smooth the surface. Arrange the tomato (1 medium tomato, thinly sliced into rounds), onion (1 small red onion, thinly sliced into rings) and jalapeño (2 fresh jalapeño chilies, deseeded, chopped) on top, pressing down lightly into the surface.
Step 4Bake, covering loosely with foil if the edges are overbrowning, for 30-35 minutes or until set and golden. Drizzle the lime juice (2 tsp fresh lime juice) over the avocado (1 ripe avocado, sliced) and season with a little salt. Top the slice with the avocado, sour cream (Sour cream, to serve) and coriander (Fresh coriander leaves, to serve). Serve.
