Quesadillas are delicious and easy snacks, but can easily be high in fat and carbohydrates. This healthier version is made with black beans, sweet potato and whole grain tortillas, making them high in vitamin A, potassium, iron and fiber. Enjoy with some lime-infused cabbage slaw, which adds a refreshing kick to the dish.
- Switch up your beans: black-eyed peas or any other bean would go well with this recipe.
- Make a double batch and have enough for multiple meals.
- Purchase fresh salsa from your local taqueria; vary the salsa to suit your taste buds.
- If not following a low-fat plant-based diet, add 1/4 sliced avocado to your quesadilla.
