Vegetarian Quesadilla Recipe

Prep: 10 mins – Cook: 20 mins – Total: 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 8 whole wheat large 8” tortillas
  • 14 oz can black beans rinsed & drained
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 large bell pepper diced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup red onion minced
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 2/3 cups cheese that melts well shredded (cheddar, mozzarella)
  • Salsa guacamole and yogurt, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add black beans, corn, pepper, cilantro, red onion, cumin and salt; stir well to combine. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  2. Build each quesadilla: on a half of tortilla sprinkle 3 tbsp (half of 1/3 cup) of cheese, spread 1/2 cup veggie mixture and sprinkle with remaining 3 tbsp of cheese. Fold the other half of tortilla on top pressing on it somewhat gently-hard making a half moon shape. Repeat and make 8 quesadillas. If you have any leftover veggie mixture – eat it.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, let rest for 3-5 minutes and cut each quesadilla in half using serrated knife. Serve with salsa and yogurt.
