Are you ready for the crazy Thanksgiving holiday week?

Because this is a week where we all indulge, here’s a light and healthful way to enjoy a meatless meal without a lot of hands-on time:  Sheet Pan Quesadillas with Sweet Potatoes, Poblanos and Black Beans with Chipotle Sour Cream!

How to make Sheet Pan Quesadillas:

  • These sheet pan quesadillas do require a fair amount of oven time, but once prepped and in the oven, you can do other things.
  • Place all the vegetables on a large baking sheet and let them roast away!

  • When I’m cooking for one of my personal chef clients, I generally line my baking sheets with aluminum foil if they have no objection.  Clean-up is so much easier!
  • Whether you line your baking sheet first is up to you.  If you line your baking sheet first, you can simply lift the roasted vegetables off the baking sheet and continue with a clean baking sheet to bake the quesadillas.

  • Because these quesadillas bake rather than fry, and don’t have to worry about filling falling out when they require flipping, I really fill them up!  Give the top tortilla a good shot of cooking spray and bake until it’s crispy and the cheese melts.
  • These can be made ahead to this point and baked at a later time.

A word about cooking sprays:  Some people find them objectionable because of the added chemicals and propellants.  However, there are numerous good ones available now that are all-natural.  Check out this information from Rodale:  Best All-Natural Cooking Sprays.

You can even make your own cooking spray using an oil mister!

Whenever we make quesadillas, serving this chipotle sour cream alongside is a must!

Ingredients
  

Quesadillas

  • 1 pound sweet potatoes - 2-3 medium, peeled and cubed (approximately 1/2-inch)
  • 2 large Poblano peppers - sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion - sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic - chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste
  • 1 can (15-ounce) black beans - drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 8 whole-grain fajita-size flour tortillas
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Chipotle Sour Cream

  • 1 cup sour cream - light or regular
  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo - finely chopped

Instructions
 

Quesadillas

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with nonstick aluminum foil.
  • Place sweet potatoes, Poblanos, onions and garlic on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with chili powder. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender. Add beans and toss to combine.
  • Carefully pull the foil up with the sweet potato / black bean mixture and set aside.
  • Place a clean piece of nonstick foil on the baking sheet you used. (If using a nonstick baking sheet, you can omit lining it again as you'll have a clean baking sheet.) Spray the foil or the nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Place four tortillas on the prepared baking sheet. Place 1/4 cup cheese on each tortilla. Top with even amounts of the sweet potato / black bean mixture and top again with 1/4 cup cheese. Top each with a tortilla, pressing down to secure. Spray the top of each quesadilla with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are crisp. Serve immediately with Chipotle Sour Cream.

Chipotle Sour Cream

  • Combine ingredients in a small bowl and serve with quesadillas.

Notes

MAKE AHEAD:  Filling can be made 1-2 days ahead of time.  Refrigerate until needed.

    Just made this. Wow wonderful. Easy and fantastic. I made a couple of tweaks. I didn’t have chipolte chili in adobo so substituted ground green hatch and chipotle chili powders along with cumin. And added a chocolate chili coffee spice rubbed ny strip. Just fantastic.

    1. Thanks so much, Peter! Yes, I think this recipe is very versatile. Could add chicken if one so desires but that New York strip sounds AHH-MAZING! Thanks again and so glad you enjoyed!
