Quick Vegetarian Quesadillas

For a healthy and tasty take on the cheesy Mexican snack, fill your quesadillas with nutritious GOYA® Low Sodium Black Beans!

½ cup shredded reduced fat Colby and Monterey jack cheese

2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro

4 8” GOYA® Flour Tortillas

½ tsp. GOYA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil


1. Using small-hole strainer, drain liquid from Pico de Gallo; discard liquid. Transfer leftover tomato mixture to medium bowl. Mix in black beans, cheese and cilantro until combined.
