Loaded Veggie & Black Bean Quesadillas

Pin It

Oh yes, football season is BACK!!! To celebrate, I wanted to share these awesome quesadillas that are definitely worthy of joining you on the couch for the big game..... or games if you watch all Sunday long like we do ;) They are big, delicious, and will give you all the energy you need to cheer on your favorite team. (Go Bears!)

Vegan (with dairy-free cheese)
Gluten-free (with gluten-free tortillas)
Makes 2 large quesadillas

15 oz. can black beans
Corn, about 1/2 cup (I used frozen and thawed it)
2 cloves garlic
2-3 green onions
Cooked brown rice
Shredded cheese
4 large tortillas

Rinse and drain black beans. Chop tomatoes and green onion. Mince garlic.
Place a tortilla on a skillet. (I leave the stove turned off until assembly is complete.)
Add a layer of cheese, followed by the beans, veggies, and rice.
Add another layer of cheese to "glue" both sides together.
Sprinkle on a bit of cumin and then place the other tortilla on top.
Heat over medium for a few minutes on each side or until heated through.
