Mix refried beans, chilis, sweet potatoes, and cumin together. Assemble quesadillas by spreading about 1/3 cup or so on one tortilla, sprinkle about 1 tbsp of cheese on top of bean/potato mixture, add 1-2 tablespoons of shredded chicken if desired, top with second tortilla, and cook on non-stick or lightly oiled griddle until tortillas are lightly browned and insides are hot (be careful not to burn).
Serve with a variety of salsas, guacamole, some low-fat chips, and fresh fruit for a quick, filling, and easy supper or lunch.
This will serve 4 generously and could feed 5-6 if no one is a huge eater.
In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.
I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes". I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book. I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.
If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me. If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe. If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
