Sweet Potato Quesadillas Recipe

Let's get this week started on a fun and healthy note with a new recipe! This is one of my favorites, and it is full of super foods!

Sweet Potato and Spinach Quesadillas

You will need:
2 medium sweet potatoes (about a pound)
dash or two of salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
8 flour tortillas
5 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup shredded cheese (or less)
2-3 tsp of coconut oil or nonstick cooking spray

1. Start by cooking your sweet potatoes in the oven. I poke holes all over them with a fork and then cook them until they are nice and soft.
2. Split the cooked potatoes open with a knife; remove their yummy goodness and use a fork to smash the potato with salt and pepper.
3. Divide the potato filling among 4 tortillas. Top each with 1 heaping cup spinach, a smattering of cheese and another tortilla.
4. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray or add oil. Then, cook the quesadillas one at a time until cheese is melted. (about 3 minutes per side)
5. Cut and serve after all quesadillas are made.

Enjoy! These are very filling and oh-so-good for you!


  1. Sounds SO yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  2. My daughter has been telling me that she wants to make quesadillas. I showed her this recipe because we did not think of using sweet potatoes. We also love spinach. This is a nice healthy meal.

  3. I like all the components, but I would have never imagined putting them together. Hmm. I may need to try!

  4. I love sweet potatoes. I'll have to give this a try.

  5. Ooo . . this looks good. I like sweet potatoes.

  6. How do you turn it over without everything falling out or the bottom tortilla folding up?

  7. I have never had a problem with stuff falling out or the tortilla folding up. If you put the spinach on top of the sweet potato, it kind of sticks to it.

  8. This looks really interesting! I must try it.

  9. I could easily do this, but my kids would not even give it a second look. I make a pizza with homemade sweet potato chips, caramelized onions, garlic, rosemary, goat cheese and kale. It tastes amazing and at the same time its healthy!
