Sweet Potato Quesadilla

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/4 cup cubed roasted turkey or a ½ cup canned black beans, rinsed
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Saute the onion in the olive oil until softened and golden brown. Add the cumin and salt to taste and cook for 1 minute. Stir in sweet potato and cook for an additional minute. Cool slightly.
