Chimichurri Sweet Potato Black Bean Quesadilla – 10 minute Grilled Quesadillas with Beans. Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Peppers and refresghing Chimichurri sauce. Vegan Nutfree Soyfree Recipe. Can be Gluten-free. Jump to Recipe
When I made this Black Bean Chimichurri Salad, I had noted in my recipe notebook to make a grilled sandwich or quesadilla with it. The Roasted Sweet potatoes, some beans, crunchy veggies, Refreshing Chimichurri and vegan cheese is a perfect grilled combination in a quesadilla or sandwich.
Use cooked beans of choice such as black, kidney or pinto, some crunchy or roasted peppers or veggies and sweet potatoes and grill it all up with the chimichurri sauce and optional vegan cheese. This garlic sauce drizzle also works great. It thickens and sticks to make a cheesy addition that holds the veggies together.
Easy, Summery, Delicious. Yes and yes!
