    Serves: 6 

    • 2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed
    • 6 large tortilla wraps
    • 225g mature Cheddar cheese, grated and divided
    • 1 (400g) tin black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
    • 235g salsa (optional)

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

    1. Preheat oven to 230 C / Gas 8. 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; keep oven warm.
    3. Heat a pan over medium heat and warm a tortilla in the pan until pliable, about 2 minutes. Flip the tortilla over and sprinkle on some of the grated cheese to about 1cm from the edge. Allow the cheese to melt, then spread some of the mashed sweet potato over the melted cheese. Spread 2 or 3 tablespoons of black beans over the sweet potatoes. Fold the tortilla in half, enclosing the filling. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas; keep filled quesadillas warm in the oven.
    4. Slice quesadillas into wedges and serve topped with salsa.


    Use a pizza cutter to slice into wedges.

    Wonderful! The kids loved it! I added sauteed onion, garlic, cumin, and chili powder to the sweet potatoes. Other than that, it is a great recipe. Thanks!  -  07 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was skeptical. But the combination of flavors was delicious. A resounding hit with the whole family and we don't even like sweet potatoes! Only change I made was corn tortillas. Great! Easy, cheap, nutritious: five stars!  -  11 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I caramelized a yellow onion to add to it and included the salsa and it was SO good. I served it at a dinner party last night and all of my guests really enjoyed it.  -  01 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
