As I have been dusting off my summer recipes I came across this one today. It’s quick and easy for those busy summer nights.
Black Bean Quesadillas
2 large flour tortillas
3/4 C shredded cheddar or monterey jack cheese
1/2 C frozen corn, thawed
1/2 C red bell pepper, diced
1/2 C black beans, drained
1 green onion, chopped
coconut oil to coat pan
Melt coconut oil in skillet over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the skillet and allow to heat for 1 minute before flipping. Flip tortilla, sprinkle with half the cheese, then half of each remaining ingredient. Once the cheese is melted, carefully slide the tortilla out on to a cutting board. Slice into 8 wedges and serve warm. Repeat with the remaining tortilla and ingredients.
*You can also used precooked meat or chicken in place of, or in addition to, the black beans.
Serve with a big summer salad and enjoy a colorful summer meal without heating up the kitchen.
