Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato cooked*
  • 1 (14oz) can no salt-added black beans drained and rinse (or 1.5 cups cooked beans)
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning (can use homemade or store-bought)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 large whole-wheat tortillas

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, mash the cooked sweet potato. Add in the black beans, taco seasoning, and cilantro and mix until combined.
  • Lie a tortilla on a flat surface and evenly spread the sweet potato mixture over half the wrap. Sprinkle with a quarter of the shredded cheese. Fold in half and place on baking sheet. Repeat for all four tortillas.
  • Place baking sheet in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Allow to sit for 3-5 minutes. Cut in half using a sharp knife and serve with salsa, Greek yogurt, sour cream and guacamole, if desired.

Notes

*You can cook the sweet potato in the oven at 400 degrees F for 50-60 minutes or in the microwave for 5 minutes or until soft.
*It's highly recommended that you serve the quesadillas fresh from the oven. They just don't have that same crispy factor when reheated.
