Sweet Potato Quesadillas
1 cups finely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 cups grated peeled sweet potato (about 3 potatoes)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
generous pinch of cayenne
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup grated sharp cheddar (a cheese with a "bite" is best, but it's up to you)
Sauté the onions and garlic in the vegetable oil until the onions are translucent.
Add the grated sweet potatoes, oregano, chili powder, cumin and cayenne and cook, covered, for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
When the sweet potato is tender, add salt and pepper to taste and remove the filling from the heat.
heat tortillas and put sweet potato filling on one side and a generous amount of cheese on the other. hook them up, slice, and enjoy!
