Directions

  1. Place sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until very tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl. Mash sweet potatoes and mix in cilantro, chili powder, and salt.
  2. Place corn in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high until warmed, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Spread 1/4 cup sweet potato mixture onto 1 tortilla; cover with 1/4 cup black beans and 1 tablespoon corn. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese atop corn; cover with a tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortillas and fillings.
  4. Spray a frying pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat; cook 1 quesadilla in the hot pan until cheese is melted and beans are heated through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining quesadillas; slice into quarters.

Very good meatless recipe but is fab when spiced up a bit more. I doubled the corn, used 2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes, and added LOTS of cilantro. I tripled the chili pwd and added cumin, garlic pwd. cayenne, and anything else I thought would taste good! I used a mixture of sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, and just mixed everything together, except cheese, to simplify. Served it with avocado, sour cream, and salsa. Yum! Will absolutely make again.

Tried this for dinner tonight, really good! I also went the lazy route, once the potatoes were softish, I poured the water off and added black beans and corn, garlic, chili, and onion powder to the same pot, then just mushed it all together. Spread on whole wheat tortilla and added spinach and cheese, and voila, dinner! Nice basic recipe that you could add lots of interesting things to, definitely a keeper. Thanks!
