Black Bean and Pineapple Quesadilla

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Starrynews

I recreated this dish from a favorite at a local restaurant. You can easily adjust the heat to taste (I like mine mild) by adding cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. You can also use a Mexican-style 4 cheese blend for a tasty result!

What a great change from your regular quesadilla. I used canned black beans, mashed up with a mexican seasoning I found here. I used crushed pineapple - well drained. I thought about mashing it up with the beans, but decided to put it on separately. Be generous with the pineapple - it really adds to the flavor. I cooked these on my flat panini maker rather than baking them. This goes together easily and is easily customized. Thanks for sharing!
