Vegetarian Quesadillas

Serves 3 | Serving Size: 1 quesadilla
Total Time: 10 min | Prep: 5 min | Cook: 5 min
Make a leaner quesadilla by substituting meat or chicken with beans.

Spray olive oil
6 small low-fat, whole wheat tortillas
1 can black beans (no added salt), drained
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Heat the beans in a covered bowl in the microwave.

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat OR heat a pannini maker or quesadilla maker. Lightly drizzle or spray the pan with oil.

Place one tortilla down on the pan. Top with 1/2 cup beans and a sprinkle of the cheddar cheese. You should be dividing the beans and cheese in thirds because this recipe makes 3 quesadillas.

Top with a tortilla. Lower the press for the pannini or quesadilla maker if you are using one. Or just cook in the non-stick pan until each side is brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Take care to keep the heat on medium so it doesn't burn.
Chef's Tips:
We served the quesadillas with slaw, mango salsa and pico de gallo. They look nice when they are cut in quarters and stacked on the plate as pictured.
