DIRECTIONS

  • Wash yams, cut a slit lengthwise on each yam; and microwave about 5 to 7 minutes or until done.
  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan, add onions with a pinch of salt and saute, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and carmelized, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Peel yams (now cooled down) and place in a mixing bowl, add honey, butter, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste; mash with a potato masher.
  • Toast tortilla in a dry cast-iron fry pan or comal.
  • To assemble quesadillas, lay toasted tortilla on a work surface, spread a layer of mashed yam over the surface, top with carmelized onions, and garnish with grated cotija cheese.
  • Just before serving, heat assembled quesadillas in the microwave, until warm.
  • Serve.
