This unusual quesadilla is a mix of sweet and savory flavors.



Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and sauté for
 3 minutes or until onions are soft. Add Mexican seasoning and water and cook 1 more minute, stirring. Stir in yams and beans. Cover and cook for about 6 minutes, until yams are tender but not mushy. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to a bowl.

Place 1 tortilla in the skillet; spray with olive oil. Turn over and spray the other side. Add some yam mixture to half of the tortilla, top with some cheese and fold tortilla in half. Cook in a skillet on each side for about 2 minutes, until cheese melts and filling is warm. Repeat with 
other tortilla. Serve with prepared salsa.
