This is one of those wonderful lunches that came together from leftovers…Man, I love it when that happens! These crispy tortillas are filled with hearty beef, tasty chorizo, sweet potato, refried pinto beans and cheddar cheese. Served nice and warm!
Beef, Chorizo & Sweet Potato Quesadillas
1 sweet potato
1/2 cup refried pinto beans
1 cup sliced seasoned leftover steak (Texan or Argentinean)
1/2 cup sliced leftover chorizo (used here)
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
4 flour tortillas
salt & pepper
Pierce the sweet potato with a fork and microwave four minutes on High. In a bowl, combine the sweet potato and the refried pinto beans along with a pinch or two of salt and fresh ground pepper; mix until smooth.
In a medium skillet, heat a little canola oil on medium-high. Spread half of the sweet potato mixture on the first tortilla. Place in the pan and add half of the steak and chorizo slices. Sprinkle with half of the sharp cheddar cheese.
Place the second tortilla on top. Brush with a little more canola oil. Brown the tortilla; flip over and brown the other side of the quesadilla. Remove from skillet and repeat with remaining two tortillas.
Slice into quarters.
Sprinkle with additional sharp cheddar cheese & a dollop of sour cream.
Take a big bite out of this crispy delicious quesadilla!
