2 Large Sweet Potatoes, peeled and sliced into chunks
4 White Flour Tortilla Wraps
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Ground Coriander
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper (or to preference)
1/2 can of Black Beans, rinsed
2 Large handfuls of Cheddar
Juice from 1/2 a Lime
Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
Olive Oil (see note A)
Extras 'n' optionals:
Fresh Coriander
Extra Limes
Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 200c (390f). Place your spuds in a suitably sized oven dish and give them a good drizzle of Oil. Add in your Smoked Paprika, Cumin, Ground Coriander, Cayenne Pepper, Salt & Pepper and give them a mix to completely coat them. Pop in the oven for a good 25-30mins or until softened with a caramelized outing.

When the dish has cooled down a little, grab a potato masher and roughly smash your Sweet Potatoes. Don't mash it into oblivion, you want to keep some of the crispy parts of the potato. Place to one side.

Take a Tortilla and lightly brush one side of it with Oil. Place on a griddle or regular pan oiled side face down, making sure the gas is turned off. Spread on half of your Sweet Potato mash, top with half your Black Beans, 1 Handful of Cheese and a squeeze of Lime Juice. Place a second Tortilla on top, press down to contain the filling and lightly brush the top with Oil.

At this point turn the hob onto a medium heat and fry for around 6-8 mins on each side, or until nice and golden. If you tap on the Quesadillas it should sound slightly hollow and crunchy.Serve with any additional toppings and sides
