Quick Vegetarian Quesadillas

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

Simply mix the beans with GOYA® Pico de Gallo, freshly chopped herbs and a handful of cheese, fill the quesadilla, and cook. The results: the same gooey taste we crave, plus more!

Step 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. 

Step 2

Divide black bean mixture evenly over half of each tortilla (about ½ cup each). Fold tortillas in half.

Step 3

Heat large griddle or skillet over medium-high heat. Brush with oil. Place filled tortillas on griddle. Cook, carefully flipping once, until tortillas are golden brown and crisp and cheese filling melts, about 5 minutes. Cut quesadillas into wedges.
