Southwest Sweet Potato & Chicken Quesadilla

This is a recipe I will be making again. It is amazing, but I had to break up the cooking process so my sweet potato suffered! I was in the process of cooking my sweet potato in the oven, until my hubby came home and said "I want sushi." And that is NOT something I can say no to. Nope. Not happening.  

So I had to take the sweet potato out and of course it wasn't cooked all the way. Lol! 

But even with half cooked sweet potatoes, this recipe was still the! 

1 large sweet potato
1/2 cup corn (unsweetened, no added salt)
1/2 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 4 oz chopped green chilies
5 pieces chicken breast cooked and diced
3 TBSP Taco Bell Fire Sauce (optional)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt 
1 cup cheddar cheese (fat free)
4 whole wheat grain

1. Cook sweet potato in oven. Wrap sweet potato in aluminum foil & bake 40-45 minutes in 375 degree, or until tender.
2. While sweet potato is cooking, in a mixing bowl, mix together all other ingredients except cheese and tortillas.
3. When sweet potato is done cooking, skin sweet potato & diced up. 
4. Take diced sweet potato pieces & mash them! Add mashed sweet potato into dry mixture. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
5. When eating, put 1/2 RED container one 1 small tortilla & 1/2 BLUE of cheese

*** Can dip in salsa to give more of a kick! <3
