Black Bean Quesadillas

Serves 4 People


Small Bowl

Skillet/frying pan


1 Can Black Beans

Shredded Cheese (Pepper Jack or your preference)

½ Cup Salsa

4 Tortillas

1 tsp. Canola/Vegetable Oil

1 Avocado, diced (if desired)



Rinse beans, then combine with cheese and ¼ Cup Salsa. Spread bean filling evenly across tortillas and fold in half.  Heat oil in skillet. Place tortillas 1 or 2 at a time (however they will fit) in the skillet and cook until bottom side is golden brown. Flip over to brown the other side.  Once all four quesadillas are cooked, serve with avocado and the extra salsa. (I recommend actually serving the avocado and salsa over a small bed of lettuce – it makes a delicious little side salad!)
