Black Bean Quesadillas

By June 4, 2011 5 Comments

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.
