Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadillas

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadillas slightly adapted from tinatan1713 on AllRecipes

2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed
6 (10 inch) tortillas
1 - 1.5 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
1 cup salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 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. 
  3. Heat a skillet (or quesadilla maker) over medium heat. Warm the black beans in a bowl in the microwave for about 45 seconds. 
  4. Lay one tortilla in the pre-heated skillet and sprinkle with enough cheese to cover the bottom (to taste - appx. 1/3 cup). Layer with 1/3 of the mashed sweet potatoes and sprinkle on 1/3 of the black beans. Sprinkle on a little more cheese if desired, then top with another tortilla. Cook for a few minutes, until browned and then carefully flip, and brown remaining side.
  5. When browned and heated through, move to a cutting board and then dice into wedges.
  6. Top with salsa, or serve as a dip on the side.
