Sweet Potato Black Bean Quesadillas
Was your Halloween awesome?
It was awesome. I’m exhausted.
So I’ll keep this short and sweet.
Speaking of sweet… I can’t believe that I’m not in a sugar coma right now. I swear I’m worse than the children. I’ve been eating Halloween Candy alllllll day. Skittles. Reese’s Cups. Itty bitty pieces of Hershey’s Special Dark. Nerds. Evan just gave me a snack size Snickers bar. I didn’t need it. I ate it anyway, though.
Also I made you some Halloween colored food.
Because even though Halloween is over, and there is snow happening like 45 minutes from here, and all the stores decorated for Christmas the week before last, it’s still TECHNICALLY fall for at least another month. So bear with me here.
Sweet potatoes. Black Beans. Four Kinds of Cheese. Sort of healthful and full of things that are vitamin-ey. You know. To help cancel out the candy.
I also added some fresh Serrano peppers to my sweet potatoes and black beans. They came off the plants that Chad is so completely obsessed with that he has made them a nice warm over-winter place right smack in the middle of our bathroom. And now Norma Jean thinks it’s a jungle in there.
These quesadillas are sorta spicy and sorta sweet and completely amazing. Just like our Halloween.
How cute are my little monsters?
Andrew has informed me that this was the last year he will be trick-or-treating.
He went out with a bang in Chad’s construction garb (he’s missing half his costume in this photo, also he’s making a weird face. But! He’s still cute).
And then we have Jack Skellington here… I love that every year he lets me turn his face into an art project.
Halloween is officially through. And I’m crashing pretty hard right now. Oh the things a sugar binge will do to you.
So let me share this recipe before I fall flat out on my keyboard.
