Serves: 2

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large tortillas (any kind will work but I used this)
  • 1 c chicken breast, cooked and diced
  • 1 1/2 c sweet potatoes, skin on and diced small
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 c fresh spinach
  • 1 c shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 c shredded parmesan
  • pinch of crushed red pepper
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F.
  2. Toss the diced sweet potato in the melted coconut oil and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Lay out evenly onto a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes, until pieces fork tender and slightly crispy around the edges.
  3. In the meantime lay a tortilla on a skillet pan over medium-low heat. Warm for about 3 minutes.
  4. To add the filling, while tortilla is in the pan place half of the chicken, sweet potato, spinach, mozzarella and parm onto one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle with seasonings and then carefully fold the tortilla in half to cover the filling. Press down lightly with a spatula and let cook until ingredients warm and cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove the quesadilla from heat, plate and slice.
  6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the second tortilla.
  7. Serve quesadillas with a side of guacamole or favorite dipping sauce (guac is my favorite).
