Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F.Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 3 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp spicy, 1 tsp extra-spicy! Cut sweet potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes. Toss the sweet potatoes with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through cooking, until golden-brown and tender, 22-23 min.


While sweet potatoes roast, core and cut pepper(s) into 1/2-inch pieces. Drain and rinse beans. Heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then peppers, onions and Mexican Seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers soften, 4-6 min. Season with salt and pepper.


Add beans, diced tomatoes, broth concentrates, 1 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) and 1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce (NOTE: Reference the Heat Guide) to the pot. Reduce the heat to medium. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 8-9 min.


While stew simmers, thinly slice green onions and arrange tortillas, on a clean work surface. Sprinkle cheese and half the green onions on one side of each tortilla. Carefully, fold the other side of the tortillas over cheese.


Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then add two quesadillas. Cook, until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Repeat with remaining quesadillas. Set aside on a plate and cover to keep warm.


Add roasted sweet potatoes to the stew and stir together. Season with salt and pepper. Divide stew between bowls. Sprinkle with remaining green onions. Cut quesadillas into triangles and serve on the side for dipping!
