Vegan Sweet Potato Black Bean Quesadillas

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients

  • 8 whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1/2 block firm tofu (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 small yellow onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 small sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1/2 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan cheddar cheese, shredded

Chipotle Avocado Dip

  • 1 medium avocado, mashed
  • 3 tbsp vegan chipotle mayo

Instructions 

  • Heat a large pan on medium heat with 1 tbsp. olive or avocado oil and add the onion. Sauté until onions are cooked.
  • Pre-heat oven for 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add sweet potato and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add bell pepper and cook for another minute.
  • Add remainder of ingredients (minus the cheese) and spices and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  • Assemble tortillas on a baking sheet and add sweet potato filling, then top with grated cheese.
  • Place another tortilla on top and bake for 10-15 minutes (or until tortillas are golden), flipping halfway through.
  • While quesadillas are baking, mash up avocado and mix with chipotle mayo.
  • Allow quesadillas to cool and cut into quarters using a pizza cutter.
  • Dip into avocado mayo and enjoy!

*The filling mixture may make extra, I like to put in a container and freeze for future quick meals!

*Filling can also be placed on top of mixed greens or rice to make a delicious taco salad or burrito bowl!
