About the Recipe

I may or may not have been inspired by a Hellofresh meal I tried. Don't sleep on them, they really are fresh, tasty, and healthy meals. I love me a good quesadilla!


  • 1 Sweet Potato

  • 1 Poblano Pepper

  • 1 Yellow Onion

  • 1/4 oz Cilantro

  • 1 Roma Tomato

  • 3 Radishes

  • 1 Lime

  • Southwest Spice

  • 4 tbsp Sour Cream

  • 2 Flour Tortillas

  • 1/2 Cup of Cheddar Cheese

  • 1/2 Cup of Mozzarella


Step 1

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry produce. Peel and dice sweet potato into ½-inch pieces. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Roast on top rack, tossing halfway through, until browned and tender, 20-25 minutes. Remove roasted sweet potato from sheet.

Step 2

While sweet potato roasts, core, deseed, and dice poblano. Halve, peel, and dice onion; mince a few pieces until you have 1 TBSP (2 TBSP for 4 servings). Trim and finely dice radishes. Dice tomato. Finely chop cilantro. Quarter lime. Place ½ tsp Southwest Spice in a small bowl and reserve for step 4 (you’ll use the rest in the next step).

Step 3

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add poblano and diced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until tender, 5-7 minutes. Once sweet potato is done roasting, add to pan along with remaining Southwest Spice. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Turn off heat.

Step 4

In a medium bowl, combine radishes, tomato, cilantro, minced onion, a squeeze of lime juice, and a large drizzle of olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper. To bowl with reserved Southwest Spice, add sour cream, a squeeze of lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency.

Step 5

Place tortillas on a clean work surface. In a second small bowl, combine cheddar and mozzarella. Sprinkle half the cheese mixture onto one half of each tortilla. Top with cooked veggies, then sprinkle with remaining cheese mixture. Fold tortillas in half to create quesadillas.

Step 6

Wash out pan used for veggies. Heat a drizzle of oil in pan over medium-high heat; add quesadillas and cook until tortillas are golden brown and cheese melts, 2-4 minutes per side. TIP: Depending on the size of your pan, you may need to work in batches. Cut quesadillas into wedges and divide between plates. Top with salsa and crema. Serve with remaining lime wedges on the side.
