  1. Preheat oven to 200c (390f).
  2. Place your spuds in a suitably sized oven dish and give them a good drizzle of Oil. Add in your Smoked Paprika, Cumin, Ground Coriander, Cayenne Pepper, Salt & Pepper and give them a mix to completely coat them. Pop in the oven for a good 25-30mins or until softened with a caramelized outing.
  3. When the dish has cooled down a little, grab a potato masher and roughly smash your Sweet Potatoes. Don’t mash it into oblivion, you want to keep some of the crispy parts of the potato. Place to one side.
  4. Take a Tortilla and lightly brush one side of it with Oil. Place on a griddle or regular pan oiled side face down, making sure the gas is turned off. Spread on half of your Sweet Potato mash, top with half your Black Beans, 1 Handful of Cheese and a squeeze of Lime Juice. Place a second Tortilla on top, press down to contain the filling and lightly brush the top with Oil.
  5. At this point turn the hob onto a medium heat and fry for around 6-8 mins on each side, or until nice and golden. If you tap on the Quesadillas it should sound slightly hollow and crunchy.
  6. Serve with any additional toppings and sides (suggestions in ingredients). Enjoy!
