Sweet Potato, Paprika and Mozzarella Quesadillas

I love quesadillas. Such a quick and easy meal to prepare. I often do these on a Saturday with a bowl of soup.Sweet Potato quesadillas

Ingredients
1 medium sweet potato
100g mozzarella, sliced
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 flour tortillas

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 180C
  • Peel sweet potato and cut into small chunks.  Boil in a pan of water for around 10-15 minutes. until soft
  • Mash the sweet potato, and season with pepper.  Mix in the paprika.
  • Heat a large frying pan
  • Spread the sweet potato mixture over one side of a tortilla, and scatter the mozzarella on top
  • Cover with the other tortilla, and cook on the frying pan
  • Cook for around 4 minutes each side
  • Allow to cool slightly, and slice (I use a pizza cutter!)

These have a lovely mild flavour, which my little one loves.  You can always ramp up the flavour by adding more paprika, or a stronger cheese.  I just love mozzarella because it’s nice and gooey!
