Chipolte-Tomato Cooked Salsa and Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Quesadillas

Tonight I made versions of two of my favorite foods, salsa and quesadillas. The salsa is a smoky, spicy dip, and the quesadillas were cheesy and delicious!

The salsa recipe is CHIPOLTE-TOMATO SALSA, a easy and wonderful salsa to make. Onions, garlic, and peppers are sauteed until tender, and then tomatoes and chipolte peppers are added to the simmering mixture. After being processed in a food processor, the salsa is cooled to room temperature. Cilantro and lime juice are stirred in right before serving.

ROASTED SWEET POTATO AND BLACK BEAN QUESADILLAS were the main course this evening. These Mexican style grilled cheese sandwiches feature roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, scallions, and monetary jack cheese sandwiched between two flour tortillas. They are cooked in a skillet with a small amount of butter until the tortillas are brown and the cheese is melted.

What a wonderful dinner! I loved the salsa, it was very spicy! I enjoyed this with homemade corn chips, and will make this salsa many more times. The quesadillas were outstanding, filling, cheesy and a little sweet. I am so glad I made extras to have for lunch tomorrow!!!
