Black Bean Quesadillas

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by rsarahl

Really quick and really good! The veggies stay crisp and the black beans are a firm bite with a nutty, creamy taste which is just great. I paired this with a roasted chipotle salsa and had a wonderful lunch. While this was a perfect week day lunch for one, it could easily be scaled up and made into a family dinner by adding a nice green salad. I can see adding some sliced grilled chicken for a heartier meal... hey, great recipe that is easily adaptable and is clearly a springboard for other meal ideas!
