"I wanted to make something using orange and black colors for Halloween, and came up with sweet potato, black bean and cheese quesadillas. These wedges are comfortingly good at any time of year, but especially cute for Halloween! My kids love them plain...I love them with my spicy cilantro salsa! "

Wonderful! The kids loved it! I added sauteed onion, garlic, cumin, and chili powder to the sweet potatoes. Other than that, it is a great recipe. Thanks!
Cute that the quesadillas are orange but they don't taste anything like sun dried tomatoes! There are jalapeno flavored tortillas that are orange, maybe they're tastier!
I caramelized a yellow onion to add to it and included the salsa and it was SO good. I served it at a dinner party last night and all of my guests really enjoyed it.
These were great, I added some cumin and chili powder for a little spice. My kiddos ate them up-always a plus!
I made these last night to use up left over mashed sweet potatoes and they were so good. Even my husband who isn't a bean person liked them. I used regular tortillas as it was what I had on hand and instead of salsa I served them with sour cream
I was skeptical. But the combination of flavors was delicious. A resounding hit with the whole family and we don't even like sweet potatoes! Only change I made was corn tortillas. Great! Easy, cheap, nutritious: five stars!
Carmelized a small chopped onion, and added between 1/8 and 1/4 tsp of cinnamon along with cumin and a sprinkle of cayenne. We didn't need the salsa, and used multigrain tortillas. Great for the vegetarians among us!
I cannot believe how absolutely simple and delicious these are. My four year old could not stop talking and raving over them.
