Vegetarian Quesadilla 

At all times there are the two crucial ingredients in my pantry to make these - tortillas and black beans. If I am in a funk and forgot to take something out of the freezer or I didn't make it to the supermarket that day I know I can always make these.

These are delicious and you can kind of just use the recipe as a base and add what ever you want to them or on top once cooked.


1x packet of Tortillas (6pk) 
1x 400g can Black Beans ( I use the organic ones)
1 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes ( or more if you want)
1 - 1.5 cups grated cheese
Optional additions chopped capsicum, cooked chicken, red onion, mushrooms, spring onion.


Drain off the black beans in a sieve.
Add the black beans to a bowl and squish these up with your hands.
Then add in the cheese, spices and what ever else you would like to the bowl and squish these all up again with your hands.
Lay flat 3x Tortillas. Divide your mixture in to three and squish flat on to the tortilla, not too close to the edges. Then place another tortilla on top.
Get a pan nice and hot with some cooking oil in it, once hot add a tortilla to the pan and cook till golden on one side then flip and cook the other side.
Let these cool a couple of mins before you cut them open to let the cheese set a bit. 

We like to add a salad with a bit of balsamic vinegar and coriander on top of ours.
