DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken and spices (cumin, paprika, red pepper, salt) and set aside.
  • Into a medium frying pan at medium/medium-high heat add your oil, green bell pepper, white onion, jalapeno, garlic, and black beans. Cook until the black beans soften slightly and the garlic is fragrant (about 3-5 minutes). Add tomatoes, whites of the green onions, cilantro, cumin, and paprika. Stir to combine and take off the heat.
  • To assemble, spray a large frying pan with non-stick spray (grill pan or griddle will work well) set to medium/medium-high heat and place a single tortilla in the middle.
  • Sprinkle a thin layer of cheese (about 3 tablespoons) over the surface, add a layer of the vegetable mix (about 3 tablespoons) to half the tortilla, and the same amount of your shredded chicken to the same half, finally sprinkle over about a teaspoon of your reserved un-cooked green onions. Apply another 3 tablespoons of cheese to the top, cover and allow to melt for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Using a spatula, flip the un-topped half over the topped half, pressing lightly, cover and cook another 2-3 minutes so all the cheese has melted and the tortilla is crispy.
  • Continue until all your veggie and chicken mixes are used up. Setting your finished quesadillas on a cooling rack in the oven set to low. When ready to serve, cut with a pizza cutter into slices and enjoy! These are great with a side of sour cream and/or guacamole.
