Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadillas

Guess what, guys! This is my 100th post.  Om Nomalicious has a ton more recipes than that, but this one marks 100 posted by me.  Who knew I made so many different types of food?

And, why do I have such a hard time menu planning?  I can never think of any ideas!

I’ve made this recipe two weeks in a row.  It fulfills my once a week meatless meal requirement.  The family doesn’t mind, though. The gobble this up, and the husband even said meat wouldn’t add anything to the flavor.

I saw this recipe for spicy black bean and sweet potato quesadillas on Pinterest, and knew I had to try it!  Now you guys should, too.  You won’t regret it!  Sweet potato and black bean is my new favorite flavor combination.

1 tsp Ground Coriander
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Oregano

Start by peeling and dicing the sweet potatoes.  Place them in a pot, cover them with water, and boil until fork tender.

Heat the oil in a skillet.  Place a tortilla in the skillet and spread the bean/potato/corn mixture on half of the tortilla.  Top with 1/8-1/4 cup of cheese, depending on how cheesy you like it.

Fold the empty half of the tortilla over the mixture and allow it to cook a few minutes until the cheese is melted and the tortilla crisps.
