Number of Servings: 10


    1 can black beans drained or two cups cooked
    1/4 cup minced green pepper
    1/4 cup minced green or white onions
    1 tsp cumin powder
    1 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    hot sauce and salt to taste
    2 tbsps salsa

    To serve:
    tortillas, your favorite kind or chips
    shredded cheddar
    lowfat sour cream or plain yogurt


Mix the black beans with the other ingredients mashing them gently to make a chunky paste. At this point the filling can be put in the fridge until needed for a fast lunch or snack.

Heat a non-stick pan or pan coated with cooking spray to medium heat. To assemble the quesadilla spread filling (1/4 cup for standard tortilla) and sprinkle with cheddar. Fold over. Two quesadillas can be cooked in the pan at once. Brown for 2 to 3 minutes on one side then flip and cook till heated through and crisp.

Note: Nutrition info is for 1/4 filling per serving. To calculate for your own purposes add the amounts of cheese, sour cream and the nutrition info for your kind of tortilla - different kinds vary and people can use more or less cheese, lower fat versions or whatever.

  • I didn't measure anything, just winged it. I put a couple of spoons of low sodium black beans in my Magic Bullet & added some chicken breast slices. Then sprinkled some onion powder, hot sauce, & a spoon of salsa in it. Used a Flat Out & some shredded cheese. I'll make this again! - 2/11/11
