Happy Sweet Potato Quesadillas

I have to be in a swimsuit in exactly 15 days, 15mins and 3 seconds. I have 5lbs that I would prefer not to take the beach. So cooking favorite meals and dropping the calorie intake is my mission. I am a tortilla girl. The way I grew up, if I was hungry I would heat up a tortilla, add butter + salt and voilá! Insta-snack.  Add the cheesy gooey love and, well,  it is a recipe of thighs and hips. In attempts to leave my ‘extra baggage’ behind on my upcoming vacay, I decided to try out a new recipe that’s more forgiving to my curvy bod. AND I still get my tortilla (: happy girl!
