Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4
  • 1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, finely chopped
  • 1 small yellow summer squash, finely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup green chile, chopped
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1½ cups shredded fat free cheddar cheese
  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, and onion. Saute until the vegetables start to get soft.
  2. Add black beans and chile. Continue cooking until the beans are heated through. Remove from heat.
  3. Spray both sides of an indoor grill with non stick cooking spray. Place a tortilla on the bottom plate of the grill. Top with ¼ cup cheese, then ¾ cup of the vegetable mixture. Top with another ⅛ cup cheese. Place a second tortilla on top. Lower the top plate and cook for 3-5 minutes, until golden brown. (You can also cook in a skillet on the stove, flipping the quesadilla half way through.)
  4. Remove quesadilla and cut into wedges with a pizza cutter. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
