A quesadilla is a great all-year-round lunch, dinner, or snack! Super simple, quick and easy to make, and great for kids of all ages! Avocado is a year round fruit (and yes it is considered a fruit), but it has the highest flavor and oil content from January-March. Put in your own fixings for a DIY Dilla!
1/2 onion sliced
1/2 bell pepper sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup black beans drained
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
4 medium soft flour tortillas
2 avocados peeled, halved, seeded and sliced 1/4 cup minced cilantro
1 lime cut in half
1 cup light Mexican Cheddar or mozzarella cheese
oil or cooking spray for grilling
In a medium pan over medium-high heat, heat 1 tbsp oil; saute onion and bell pepper in for 2-3 minutes or until tender.
Add the black beans and taco seasoning. Cook for another minute.
Transfer mixture into a small bowl and set aside.
Rinse and wipe down pan (or get new pan) and return to heat. Drizzle with a light layer of oil or cooking spray, not too much, just enough so tortillas don’t stick.
In a small bowl, lightly mash the avocados with a fork. Stir in cilantro and juice of 1/2 lime, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spread a quarter of mashed avocado onto half of a tortilla. Top with bean mixture and 1/4th cup of cheese. Fold the tortilla closed over the mix. Repeat until all tortillas are filled and all fillings are used.
Cook on medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes per side or until the outside is crispy and cheese has fully melted. Serve with your favorite salsa or sour-cream.
