Sweet Potato Quesadillas

From Simply in Season 

1 TBSP oil

1 ½ cups onion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp dry oregano

1 ½ tsp each dry basil, marjoram, chili powder

1 ½ tsp ground cumin *optional

Pinch of ground red pepper or to taste

4 cups sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed

8 tortillas

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 375F.

Sauté the onion and garlic in oil until translucent.  Add the herbs and spices, cook another minute.  Add the sweet potatoes.  Stir often to prevent sticking, cook until heated through.  Add salt and pepper to taste. 

Spread about ½ cup of the sweet potato filling and about 2 TBSP cheese on half of each tortilla, leaving a ½ inch border on the sides.  Fold tortilla in half, place on oiled baking sheets, brush the top with a little oil and bake until brown on top, 15 to 20 minutes.  Serve with sour cream and salsa (black bean salsa would be great!).
