Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the sweet potatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Transfer to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Prepare the remaining ingredients:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients:

While the sweet potatoes roast, cut off and discard the root end of the brussels sprouts; quarter lengthwise. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Drain and rinse the beans.

Roast the brussels sprouts:
3 Roast the brussels sprouts:

While the sweet potatoes continue to roast, line a separate sheet pan with foil. Place the quartered brussels sprouts in a medium bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add as much of the chile paste as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Stir to coat. Transfer to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Roast 12 to 14 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

Cook the beans:
4 Cook the beans:

While the brussels sprouts roast, in a medium pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced shallot and sugar; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Add the beans and 2 tablespoons of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and mashing the beans with the back of a spoon, 3 to 4 minutes, or until thickened and the beans are broken down. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Warm the tortillas:
5 Warm the tortillas:

While the brussels sprouts continue to roast, if using the microwave, wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave on high 1 minute, or until heated through. If using the oven, wrap the tortillas in foil and place directly onto an oven rack; warm 7 to 9 minutes, or until heated through. Transfer the warmed tortillas to a work surface and carefully unwrap.
