Black Bean Quesadillas

Yes, there’s cooking involved. But it’s all done in under 10 minutes. Here are the easy-peasy steps:

Black bean quesadillas

1.  Put a tortilla in a pan on medium heat. (Note: Use whole wheat so you don’t have Mommy guilt like me.)

2.  Flip once to warm on both sides. (This makes the cheese melt faster.)

3. Sprinkle some grated Monterey Jack cheese on half the tortilla.

4. Put a couple of tablespoons of rinsed, canned black beans on top of the cheese.

5. Fold quesadilla in half and cook until golden on both sides, about 2 to 4 minutes.

6. Cut into triangles.

All done! I smashed up half an avocado and added a twist of lime and a dash of salt to make a small side of guacamole. You could also add some salsa to the inside of the quesadilla. Unfortunately, we were all out.

To round out the lunch, I threw in a couple clementines and a plum.
