“I wanted to make something using orange and black colors for Halloween, and came up with sweet potato, black bean and cheese quesadillas. These wedges are comfortingly good at any time of year, but especially cute for Halloween! My kids love them plain...I love them with my spicy cilantro salsa! ”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Cut several slashes into each sweet potato.
  2. Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes. Mash the hot sweet potatoes in a bowl. Reduce oven heat to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat, and warm a tortilla in the skillet until pliable, about 2 minutes. Flip the tortilla over, and sprinkle the tortilla to about 1/2-inch of the edge with 1/3 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese. Allow the cheese to melt, and spread about 1/3 cup of mashed sweet potato over the melted cheese. Spread 2 or 3 tablespoons of black beans over the sweet potatoes. Fold the tortilla in half, enclosing the filling. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas; keep filled quesadillas warm in the oven.
  4. Serve in wedges topped with salsa.

Wonderful! The kids loved it! I added sauteed onion, garlic, cumin, and chili powder to the sweet potatoes. Other than that, it is a great recipe. Thanks!

I caramelized a yellow onion to add to it and included the salsa and it was SO good. I served it at a dinner party last night and all of my guests really enjoyed it.

I was skeptical. But the combination of flavors was delicious. A resounding hit with the whole family and we don't even like sweet potatoes! Only change I made was corn tortillas. Great! Easy, cheap, nutritious: five stars!
