Good Eats Vegetarian Style: Black Bean Quesadillas

  • Check out my black bean quesadillas (courtesy of Cooking Light Magazine)! I am stuffed, even Mike is stuffed which says a lot for a 6' + teenager. This is a fiber and calcium rich food, both essential for optimum health. Black beans are also known to be a super food. Quick and dirty recipe:

Music (Wes Montgomery for me tonight)

24 oz black beans (1/2 mashed)

1 cup Low-fat Monterey Jack Cheese

1 thinly sliced jalapeno

8 whole grain tortillas

1 Avocado

Tablespoon lime juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix mashed black beans with remaining beans. Spread on 4 tortillas, add cheese and pepper slices. Top with remaining tortillas. Cook each oiled skillet for 2-4 minutes each. Chop avocado, add lime, salt and whatever else you like with your avocados. Throw on top of quesidillas. Enjoy and wash down with some Trader Joe's mango lemonade. Say "Ahh!" The leftovers make a good breakfast, lunch or snack.
