Black Bean Portobello Quesadilla

These are my favorite quesadillas! They are super easy to make and delicious!! 

  • 1-2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2-3 large portobello mushrooms, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Shredded jack or pepper jack cheese
Diced Tomatoes
Tortillas - plain, wheat, spinach or whatever you like

In a pot or large pan heat 1 tbs of olive oil and saute the garlic for 3-5 minutes. Add the portobello and zucchini and cook for another 2-3 minutes then add the black beans and balsamic vinegar, mix well. Cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until most of the liquid is dissolved.

Heat a cast iron skillet on med/high heat with a touch of olive oil. Place one tortilla on the skillet at a time with cheese on one half. Place a heap of the bean mixture on the quesadilla and top with a little more cheese. Fold the quesadilla over, cook for a minute or two then flip. 

Serve with the fixins above and enjoy!!
