This is a quick recipe – only 20 minutes to prepare and cook! To lower the fat content, use reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Rinse the black beans to lower the sodium content. If using large tortillas (for a more filling meal), use more beans, cheese, and peppers.
½ cup red or green bell pepper, chopped
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
½ cup black beans, cooked and drained
4 whole wheat or corn tortillas
¼ cup salsa
¼ cup lettuce
Vegetable oil spray
Spray pan with vegetable oil. Heat pan over medium heat and place one tortilla into the pan. Place ¼ of the bell pepper, black beans, and cheddar cheese onto the tortilla. Put most of the ingredients to the left side of the tortilla. When the cheese begins to melt, fold the tortilla in half. Press down slightly to seal the sides together, and then flip the quesadilla over to brown both sides. Repeat the process with the remaining tortillas. Spoon a little salsa and lettuce on top and enjoy.
