Sweet Potato, Avocado, and Black Bean Quesadilla

Special to my friend Ms. S for clueing me in to the yummy goodness that is the combination of sweet potato + black beans! Below are two veggie-laden ways to make sweet potato and black bean quesadillas. Simply layer the ingredients on your choice of tortilla – I used corn ones – and cook in a teensy bit of olive oil on top the stove  🙂

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

To roast sweet potatoes, cut potatoes into small chunks, place in an olive oil sprinkled dish (or on a foil lined pan, as above), top with salt and pepper, and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.

  1. I’m going to try the spinach, bean, and chicken taco. Looks good!

  2. Yummy! It is one of faves that is always in rotation. I am glad that you like it.

  3. I was skeptical about this combination but it was really good! I couldn’t find large corn tortillas to make quesadillas though…I will be eating this on the regular.
