Super easy and super fantastic! What a great recipe. I peeled and cooked the sweet potatoes in the microwave, mashed them, and then stirred in the beans and spices. It was a perfect balance of flavors. I actually used muenster cheese because that's what I had on hand -- also good. They toasted nicely in the oven, and were a wonderful, tasty, filling meal.


  1. Bake the sweet potatoes in a 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes to an hour (until soft).
  2. Allow sweet potatoes to cool thouroughly.
  3. Shred the cheese and set aside.
  4. Skin the sweet potatoes and mash together with the black beans, cumin and garlic powder.
  5. Spread approximately 3/4 cup of potato/bean mixture onto a flour tortilla.
  6. Cover mixture with cheese and place another tortilla on top.
  7. Repeat until all mixture is used.
  8. Place quesadillas on greased cookie sheets.
  9. Bake in a 350 degree oven until cheese has melted and tortilla is crispy (about 10-15 minutes).
  10. Serve with salsa or your favorite condiment.
