Happy Meat Free Monday! The NCAA championship is on tonight and I want to watch the games at home. I going to prepare an inherently quick and easy dinner with uses black beans and goat cheese, two ingredients I have on hand. What a perfect marriage of flavors on a crisp quesadilla!
Yields one serving
2 flour tortillas
1/3 cup black beans, drained, rinsed and cooked
1/4 cup of goat cheese
Guacamole for serving (optional)
In a saute pan, over medium-low heat, place a tortilla in the pan. Spread the black beans evenly over the tortilla and sprinkle on the goat cheese.
Raise the heat to medium high and cook until the cheese begins to melt and the tortilla begins to brown. Place the remaining tortilla on top of the cheese and black bean mixture and press down lightly to form a quesadilla. Using a spatula, flip the quesadilla over in the pan and heat for about 1 minute or until cheese is melted and tortilla is browned. Remove from heat and place the quesadilla on a plate. Cut into quarters, (shown above) and serve with guacamole or salsa. Enjoy!
