The summer season is great for experimenting with some new family friendly recipes. With produce like peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini available at farmer’s markets, we think you’re going to love this fun quesadilla recipe. Here is what you’ll need:
- A cup of low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
- One or two teaspoons of olive oil
- Six whole wheat tortillas
- A seeded bell pepper with the top removed
- A cup of salsa
- Half of a yellow onion with the ends and skin removed
- A fifteen ounce can of drained and rinsed black beans
- A washed, medium zucchini with the ends removed
- Half a pint of washed grape or cherry tomatoes
Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut the zucchini, pepper, and onion into bite-size pieces and then slice the tomatoes in half before setting them aside.
Grab a large saute pan, add the oil, and then cook the zucchini, onion, and pepper on medium heat for five minutes or so or until soft. Follow by adding the beans and a ¼ cup of salsa and then cook for three minutes. You can add more salsa for the taste if you wish.
For the quesadillas, use cooking spray on a baking sheet and place three tortillas on it. Grab a spoonful of the vegetable and bean mix to place on the tortillas and then spread to close the edges. Use a 1/3 cup sprinkling of cheese on each tortilla and then place another tortilla on top. Bake for about five to seven minutes or until the cheese has melted and you have a nice, crispy tortilla.
Cut the quesadillas into quarters and you’re ready to serve along with whatever salsa you have left.
