Vegetable Quesadillas

One of my favorite fast, easy and healthy meals are vegetable quesadillas. It's a simple, tasty meal that just can't go wrong. And they're quite tasty with this homemade salsa.

flour tortillas
shredded cheese
sliced brown mushrooms
sliced yellow onions
sliced bell peppers
black beans
olive oil
salt & pepper

Heat olive oil in skillet to saute veggies. Warm can of black beans in small saucepot on stove. Toss onions first, then bell peppers, then mushrooms till veggies are tender in skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Take off heat and set aside.

Keep skillet on low to medium heat to warm tortilla. Add veggies, black beans, and cheese on half of tortilla, being careful to not overstuff. Fold tortilla over filling and lightly press with spatula. The goal is to get the tortilla just crispy with light golden brown spots on each side and melt the cheese.

Serve by cutting into fourths with optional sides of salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
