What are my healthy swaps for these Black Bean & Sweet Potato Quesadillas? Instead of white potatoes, I’ve switched to sweet potatoes. I have swapped in corn tortillas in place of white tortillas. Lastly, I’ve added in some heart healthy avocado because everyone loves avo! I have roasted my veggies and sweet potatoes in Mazola® Corn Oil. Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health.
I like colorful foods! Using a combination of red, green and yellow peppers is visually appealing.
