These little guys are perfect for snacking, finger foods at a party or the main course to a fabulous tex mex dinner! They take no time at all and are a healthy alternative to their crispy counterpart. I love 'turn key' style dinners. Something you can prepare easily, throw in the oven and et voila...dinner is ready. I am a big fan of being creative with recipes. I never follow any to the tee. This is the perfect example of a food you should experiment with! I love the simple black bean and sauteed onion combo but looking for something more interesting? Sautee your favorite veggies and throw them on in or...you may stay tried and true...to the classic cheese quesadilla. 
  • 1 (12oz) Can Black Beans 
  • 8oz Shredded Cheese
  • Corn or Flour Tortillas*
  • 1/2 Chopped Onion
  • 1 TSP Olive Oil 
  • Cooking Spray 
  • Salt to taste

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over Med Heat
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  3. Add onion to skillet and sautee 5-7min
  4. Line a baking sheet with foil and spritz a thin layer of cooking spray
  5. Place as many tortillas as will fit on your baking sheet without overlapping 
  6. Spread a thin layer of cheese over the tortillas; followed by a serving of beans and onions; then another layer of cheese and finally covering with another tortilla
  7. Use the cooking spray to coat the tops of the tortillas 
  8. Bake for 30min, flipping the quesdaillas halfway through
  9. Slice, dip in your fav sauce and enjoy! Using a pizza cutter works easiest )
