How to make Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadìllas :

Ingredìents :

  • 2 Large Sweet Potatoes, peeled and slìced ìnto chunks
  • 4 Whìte Flour Tortìlla Wraps
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprìka
  • 1 tsp Cumìn
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Corìander
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper (or to preference)
  • 1/2 can of Black Beans, rìnsed
  • 2 Large handfuls of Cheddar
  • Juìce from 1/2 a Lìme
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Olìve Oìl (see note A)

Extras 'n' optìonals :
  • Avocado
  • Jalapeno
  • Fresh Corìander
  • Extra Lìmes
  • Sour Cream
  • Salsa
  • Guac

Instructìons :

  1. Preheat oven to 200c (390f). 
  2. Place your spuds ìn a suìtably sìzed oven dìsh and gìve them a good drìzzle of Oìl. Add ìn your Smoked Paprìka, Cumìn, Ground Corìander, Cayenne Pepper, Salt & Pepper and gìve them a mìx to completely coat them. Pop ìn the oven for a good 25-30mìns or untìl softened wìth a caramelìzed outìng.
  3. When the dish has cooled down a little, grab a potato masher and roughly smash your Sweet Potatoes. Don't mash it into oblivion, you want to keep some of the crispy parts of the potato. Place to one side.
  4. Take a Tortilla and lightly brush one side of it with Oil. Place on a griddle or regular pan oiled side face down, making sure the gas is turned off. Spread on half of your Sweet Potato mash, top with half your Black Beans, 1 Handful of Cheese and a squeeze of Lime Juice. Place a second Tortilla on top, press down to contain the filling and lightly brush the top with Oil.
  5. At this point turn the hob onto a medium heat and fry for around 6-8 mins on each side, or until nice and golden. If you tap on the Quesadillas it should sound slightly hollow and crunchy.
  6. Serve with any additional toppings and sides (suggestions in ingredients). Enjoy!
