Barry put a pork shoulder in the slow cooker with some Salsa Verde and some other goodness. But he said he didn't know what to put with it. I had just read about Sweet Potato and Black Bean Empanadas and wanted to make those, but i didn't really have the time. So I improvised and made these: (i didn't measure anything)
For the sweet potato:
1 sweet potato, boiled and smashed
cinnamon (about a 1.5 teaspoons i think)
For the black beans:
1 can black beans, drained and smashed
garlic (I used granulated garlic as a cheat, but it would've been way better with fresh garlic and some cilantro)
Taco-sized flour tortillas
Spread sweet potato mixure on 1 tortilla and black beans on another. Put safflower oil in the pan on a medium hot stove. Place 1 of the prepared tortillas in the pan and assemble the quesadilla with the pulled pork, diced onion and cheddar cheese. Top with the 2nd tortilla and smush it a bit to adhere. Flip immediately so the oil is on both sides. Brown and flip back until browned on both sides. Cut with a pizza cutter into 6 slices and serve!
Next time I will have barry make the black beans (he does a MUCH better job) other than that it was pretty good! For my veggie friends, it would've been just as good w/o the pork.
