Black and Orange Quesadillas – eerily delicious!
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 can of refried black beans
12 corn tortillas
1 small round of queso quesadilla
small container of pepitas
Microwave two sweet potatoes in 1/2″ of water in a small casserole dish for four minutes. Flip potatoes. Microwave again and repeat until very soft. (2 or 3 times)
Cut potatoes in half length-wise and scoop out the “meat” as you create each quesadilla.
Scoop black beans directly out of the can and smear onto one side of tortilla. Sweet potato onto the other.
Sprinkle pepitas onto one side.
Place a small serving of sliced cheese onto other side.
Fold cheese side to pepitas side (so you don’t lose all of your seeds.)
Drizzle small amount of olive oil onto skillet and place folded corn tortillas onto pan (give them a jiggle so they don’t stick)
I like to place something a little heavy onto the quesadillas as they cook. (I use a cast iron bacon press because I don’t use it for bacon.)
Flip after a few minutes.
Plate with brown rice and enjoy!
