Black Bean & Sweet Potato Quesadillas

Engine 2 Diet

I never thought a quesadilla without cheese would taste this GOOD!! This is the perfect meal to make  after a hard workout! ;)

The only ingredients you'll need:

*1 medium sweet potato (I prefer purple!)
*1 cup brown rice, cooked (I love Basmati)
*1 can vegetarian refried black beans (no oil added)
*1/2 cup of salsa
*1 can black beans
*Engine 2 Ancient Grain Tortillas
*Diced jalapeños, to taste
*Spices: Cumin, Chili Powder, Onion Powder, Cayenne 


Plant Strong

First, wash the sweet potatoes, peel them, and chop them into quarters. Boil water, and put them in the pot for about 10-12 minutes. Drain them, and mash them with a fork. Set aside. During this time you can also make your brown rice and set aside.

Drain the black beans, combine with the refried (I used 1/2 of each can and it was still a ton of food--definitely makes leftovers!). 

Put the mashed sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl with the rice and salsa. Mash them together.

Put the sweet potato mixture in a sauce pan, combine the beans with it. Add the onion powder, cumin, chili powder, and a sprinkle of cayenne. Stir and mix.

Clean Eating

Place a tortilla in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat, and slather it with the bean and potato mixture. Add chopped jalapeños for taste. Place another tortilla on top. Use a spatula to push down on the tortillas and cook on each side about 3-4 minutes. 

Cut the "quesadilla" into sections and top with salsa!!
