Um, YUM. Sweet Potato Quesedilla

ALERT! ALERT! ALERT! New favorite recipe below...

I made this Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesedilla with Swiss Chard Pesto for my sis over the weekend, and hoooooly moooooly was it nom nom nom.

Filled with black beans, sweet potatoes roasted in cumin, chipotle chile pepper, queso fresco, cheddar, and covered in swiss chard pesto, it was a party in my mouf. The only thing I will change when I make it again, because I WILL make it again, is to use a little less of the chipotle chile pepper. The recipe actually calls for chipotle chile powder, but I only found the pepper, which is spicier, I think. Almost TOO spicy, but once you get everything together, it cut the spice a bit, especially adding in a side of avocados. 

And bitch, please - don't even get me started on that pesto. Made with swiss chard, which I had never used before and was waaaayyy too bitter to eat on its own (in my opinion), but mixing it with the cilantro, garlic, lime, and pumpkin seeds? Was BRILLIANT. 

Do yourself a flavor and make up a skillet. You can send me a thank you gift later.

Happy Monday, yo!

Yummo! Is it sad that this heat is making me way too lazy to cook?
