Sweet Potato Quesadilla Recipe

Ingredients

  • Splash of Cooking Oil
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Red Pepper
  • 1 Green Pepper
  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 Clove of Garlic Minced
  • 1 Can of Black Beans Drained
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Chili Flakes Optional
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Tortillas

Instructions

  • Scrub the sweet potatoes and cook them in the microwave after pricking them repeatedly with a fork. Or you can peel, boil and then mash them.
  • While the sweet potatoes are cooking, chop the onion, red pepper and green pepper.
  • Sauté onion and peppers over medium heat with the garlic and oil. Add the sweet potato and mix.
  • Add black beans and spices and mix together.
  • Put a few spoonfuls of the sweet potato black bean mixture into the tortilla and add shredded cheese.
  • Heat both sides of the quesadilla in a pan until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is golden brown.
  • Serve with guacamole, salsa and sour cream; or all on their own.

Notes

You can make a large batch of the filling and freeze some for later. Then when you're ready to eat it, take it out and defrost it in the fridge overnight or in the microwave. Cook as normal and enjoy!
