I eat black bean quesadillas a lot ~ To this very basic recipe, I baked large flour tortillas folded over the black bean mixture and cheese, added slivered onion and a small microwaved sweet potato sliced into rounds. I cut the quesadilla into four wedges, and garnished them with salsa, sour cream, sliced avocado, and lots of cilantro! It made a VERY TASTY quick meal ~ Made for my Preemie Adoption, Spring PAC 2012.
