Black Beans Quesadilla is loaded with beans since this recipe is rich in plant based protein, fiber and iron. This is one of those vegetarian recipes that meat-eaters won’t feel deprived of when eating.


    •  1-½ tsp vegetable oil

    •  ½ onion, finely diced

    •  1 clove garlic, minced

    •  15 oz black beans, rinsed & drained

    •  ½ green bell pepper, chopped

    •  1 tomato chopped

    •  10 oz frozen corn

    •  12 inches flour tortillas

  •  ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese


1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the onion and garlic until soft. Mix in beans, bell pepper, tomatoes, and corn; cook until heated through.

2. Spread 6 tortillas with equal amounts of the bean and vegetable mixture. Sprinkle with equal amounts of the Cheddar cheese, and top with the remaining tortillas to form quesadillas.

3. Heat 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place quesadillas in the skillet and cook, turning once, until cheese is melted and both sides are lightly browned.

Serves 6
