Veggie Quesedillas

From Kristin:

Note: I try to use mostly organic ingredients.


  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 red pepper, diced or chopped
  • 1 small red onion, diced or chopped
  • ½ bunch green onion, chopped
  • 2 or 3 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 small cans green chiles
  • 400 g bag shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese (lowfat)
  • 6 tortillas or more, (sundried tomato or spinach are nice for me -- to be ultra healthy you can use Ezekiel's tortillas)


  1. In a medium bowl mix beans, corn, pepper, red onion, green onion,
    tomato, and green chiles. Set aside.
  2. Put a large skillet/fry pan sprayed lightly with cooking spray on a
    large stove burner (med-high heat).
  3. Place one tortilla on the pan. Sprinkle desired amount of cheese over
    the tortilla. Then spoon an even layer of vegetable mixture over top of the
    cheese. Now sprinkle more cheese overtop of the vegetable mixture and cover
    with another tortilla.
  4. Cook on each side approximately 3-5 minutes or until cooked/heated well
    enough on each side. To flip torilla over place baking sheet on top of the
    pan and then turn upside down. Then slide uncooked side from baking sheet
    back into the pan.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have used up the mixture. Should make
    at least 3 full quesadillas.

Serve with salsa, guacamole, sour cream, refried beans and rice.
