Roasted peppers, salsa or avocado go well with these quesadillas but they do well on their own and don't really need the extra frills.
Recipe for Sweet Potato Quesadillas:
4 sweet potatoes
2 teaspoons oil
2 cloves garlic
1 can black beans drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
salt to taste
1 cup pepper jack or Mexican cheese blend
1 cup baby spinach leaves
8 tortillas ( plain or flavored)
1. Cook the sweet potato, mash, season and set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a pan and saute the garlic and the onion until fragrant. Add in the beans.
( At this point any other veggies can be added in). Season with salt and add in the cumin and chili.
3. Assemble the quesadilla by placing 4 tortillas on a flat, clean surface. Spoon a fourth of the potato onto each and top with the bean mixture cheese and spinach. Place the second tortilla over this and press down gently.
4. Heat a griddle and cook on each side till the cheese melts and the tortillas are crisp. Cut into quarters and serve hot topped with avocado, sour cream, or salsa. A sweet red pepper roasted accompanies it well.
