15 min 15 min 30 min 4


1 avocado(s) Avocado (ripe, diced)
1 can (15oz) Black beans, canned
2 tsp Canola oil
1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese (preferably pepper Jack)
1/2 cup Salsa, ready-to-serve (divided)
4 medium tortilla(s) Wheat flour tortilla


Combine beans, cheese and 1/4 cup salsa in a medium bowl. Place tortillas on a work surface. Spread 1/2 cup filling on half of each tortilla. Fold tortillas in half, pressing gently to flatten.

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 quesadillas and cook, turning once, until golden on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes total.

Transfer to a cutting board and tent with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and quesadillas. Serve the quesadillas with avocado and the remaining salsa.
