I know that you are already aware of my love affair with Mexican food…I could probably eat it everyday…
Here is a great, and easy quesadilla recipe…I keep extra tortillas frozen for just such an occasion!
Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadillas
(adapted from Ultimate Mexican, Better Home and Gardens)
1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1tbsp lime juice
1tsp dried oregano
1tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup grated cheese, monteray jack or marble would be good choices
1 1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
In skillet fry onion until translucent, add garlic and saute lightly. Stir in black beans, lime juice, oregano and cumin. Heat through.
On a cookie sheet lay 4 of the tortillas. Top each with sweet potato. Top that with some of the cheese, then the bean mixture, the spinach then a final layer of cheese. Lay the final 4 tortillas over and bake at 400 degrees for about 12-15 minutes.
Let cool for 5 min before cutting into quarters and serving with salsa, sour cream and/or Guacamole (quite possibly my favourite thing to eat…next to cake that is!)
