Bean and Cheese Quesadillas<br><br>

Suitable for a: vegetarian diet<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Here is a recipe for quesadillas made with cheese and beans. I've used black beans with jalapeno jack cheese as well as pinto beans with jala-jack cheese.<br><br><br><br>
8 tortillas<br><br>
1 can beans rinsed and drained- type is your choice<br><br>
1/2 chopped tomato<br><br>
fresh chopped cilantro to taste (optional)<br><br>
1/2 cup shredded cheese - type is your choice<br><br>
about 4-6 tbsp chopped black olives<br><br>
handful washed spinach leaves - chopped<br><br>
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash beans in a large bowl, mix in chopped tomato and cilantro. Place 4 tortillas on a baking sheet, spread bean mixture on them. Top with cheese, olives, spinach, and hot sauce. Place another tortilla on each one, and bake for about 10-15 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

I suppose a serving is 1 quesadilla per person, but I'm a woman and I could eat 2 for dinner. I typically eat one at lunch time, sometimes with some tortilla chips and salsa on the side. I think these would be yummy with some guacamole to dip them in. I can usually prepare these in about 20-25 minutes from start to finish including cooking time.
