Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quesadilla | Good Cheap Eats

Quesadillas are one of my go-to quick dinner ideas. Not only do they taste great, but you can mix and match the fillings in so many ways that you just can’t be bored. Bonus points: you need about zero culinary skill to make quesadillas, making them a perfect starter recipe for the novice home cook.

Typically my kids prefer just straight up cheese, sometimes with a little chicken thrown in. I like to get a little more sophisticated with my quesadillas, adding leftover grilled vegetables, enchilada sauce, taco meat. If it would go well in a taco or burrito, chances are it will go well in a quesadilla.

Really, if it goes with cheese, the queso in the quesadilla, you’re good to go.

My new favorite combination is one that sounds odd at first, but tastes AMAZING.

Amazing, I tell.

One of my favorite recipes in 2015 is this Zucchini and Sweet Potato Hash. I’ve eaten it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner — and love it all ways, particularly when folded into a quesadilla. Wow!

If you’re looking for a meatless dish or just want to jazz up your next batch of quesadillas, then you need to make this!

How do YOU like your quesadilla?

    This is my clean out the fridge meal….left over veg from the last few nights, great! What? There is extra steak, taco filling, or chicken? In it goes! (Although not all together). Anything else not nailed down? The extra last bit of the last 3 blocks of assorted cheeses. Perfect. And then….hallelujah! Do I spy an avocado or a packet of guacamole! La!!!!! Perfect. :).

    Yum. I have been using leftover roast cauliflower in mine this week.
