Black Bean Chili Quesadillas
This Is A Delicious And Easy To Make Black Bean Chili Quesadilla Recipe!! It's Also Used For The Chili Dish As Well!! Two In One You Might Say!! It's Also Vegan!! You Can Add Any Combination Of Veggies Or Spice It Up Anyway You Like. It's Up To Your Imagination. Also You Can Use Any Variety Of Tortilla And There Are So Many Available In Grocery Stores. You Can Get Spinach, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Whole Wheat, Whole Grain, Flour - Practically Any Flavor You Want. You Can Add Diced Tomatoes To The Quesadilla But Sometimes It Makes It Soggy. So, I Skipped It In My Recipe. Choose Any Color Or a Combo Of Bell Peppers And It Still Tastes Good. Here Is My Version.
1 package morning star Grillers Crumbles
4 low carb whole wheat tortillas (or any variety you like)
1 canned black beans 15oz.
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
1 each sweet peppers, (yellow, red, orange) sliced thin
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 tsp red chili powder (optional)
1 tsp cumin powder (optional)
1 cup Mexican four cheese blend (Soy)
sea salt and cayenne pepper to taste
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 small can tomato sauce (optional) can make your own
Oil for sautéing
Dice the onion and bell peppers.
Pour oil in a pan and sauté onion for a few seconds.
Then add the green bell pepper and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes. You can leave a little crunch in the bell pepper.
Add the black beans and mix well.
Add the paprika, red chilli powder, cumin powder and ketchup. Mix well and salt/pepper and set aside.
To assemble the quesadilla, warm up two tortillas to begin with.
Place one tortilla and sprinkle cheese and spread out the veggie filling.
Next sprinkle as much or as little cheese as you like on top of the veggies.
Place the second tortilla on this and warm up both the sides. Take care while turning the tortilla.
Once the tortilla becomes a little hard and the cheese melts remove and set aside. Usually this takes 1 to 2 minutes.
Use a pizza cutter to cut the quesadilla into four pieces.
Optional Serve with a dollop of sour cream (optional) or some guacamole. Note: You will have some chili remaining. Pour into a bowl and eat along with the quesadillas!! Enjoy!
