Sweet Potato Quesadillas

Sweet Potato Quesadillas

Serves 4

30 minutes or fewer

This fork-and-knife quesadilla is great topped with salsa and guacamole.
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 3 cups grated sweet potatoes
  • 1 small jalapeno chile, chopped
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 4 8-inch flour tortillas

1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and season with salt, if desired. Cook, covered, 
8 minutes. Add sweet potatoes, jalapeño, cumin, and oregano; cover, and cook 
10 minutes, stirring often. Stir in corn, and cook 1 minute, or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

2. Spread 1/2 cup filling on one-half of each tortilla, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges. Fold tortillas to enclose filling. (If a tortilla’s edges don’t stick together, brush some oil along bottom inside edge.)

3. Coat large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Cook quesadillas in skillet 2 to 3 minutes, turning once.

no queso means no quesadilla!!

Starting a heart healthy diet after a heart attack. These are delicious. I didn't put any salt for seasoning. Paired it with some fresh tomato salsa. I'm sure guacamole, or just some sliced avocado would make this an even more outstanding dish! I'm sure the sweet potato would pair well with a more tart tomatillo salsa. I absolutely love cheese and didn't miss it. By the way....it can definitely be called a quesadilla (anything this is a pan-warmed tortilla folded in half with a filling is a quesadilla). Add cheese if you desire....don't worry about what you call it....sheesh!

If it does not have cheese, don't call it a quesadilla, FGS!
