Sweet Potato, Avocado, and Bean Quesadillas

Sweet Potato Quesadilla (2)

Quick enough for any busy weeknight, these quesadillas are not only fast but also versatile. Keep the flavors simple for little kids with the ingredient list below; meanwhile, older children and adults can add a sprinkle of cumin or chili powder to the quesadilla filling, and dress their serving up at mealtime with non-dairy sour cream, hot sauce, and salsa.


  • 4 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded Daiya pepper jack
  • 1/2 cup rinsed and drained canned pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup mashed, cooked sweet potato
  • 1 sliced avocado
  1. Place 2 tortillas on a baking sheet. Layer evenly with the pepper jack, pinto beans, sweet potato, and avocado.
  2. Top with the remaining 2 tortillas and bake at 425 degrees for 8 minutes.

Top as desired, and serve!
