Black Bean and Avocado Veggie Quesadillas | Easy 15 Minute Dinner

Black Bean & Avocado Veggie Quesadillas

Here is a delicious and quick dinner recipe that actually turned out amazing and very filling! It always sucks when I create a recipe and make it, and then am hungry two hours later. I really hate when that happens!

Well, this time, I was full! I was even still super full a few hours later as I was laying in bed.

I wanted to try an alternative to our regular chicken quesadillas because I was kind of bored with it. Plus, I like the idea of a meatless Monday! I'm trying to be healthier these days and lose some of this baby weight, but to be honest, a quick dinner will ALWAYS win out over a healthy one these days. Man, making dinner with a baby can be tough! I hope you enjoy this one and remember, you can change it up to add in whatever your favorites are!


Also, this recipe can easily be made to be a vegan recipe if you skip or use an alternative cheese!

  1. Thinly slice and chop up onion and green pepper.

  2. Heat 2 tbsp over medium heat and add onion and green pepper once hot. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for about 8 minutes, or until desired softness.

Add the tortilla with the guac into the pan and sprinkle some of the pepper/onion/bean mix into the tortilla. Add about 1/4 cup or so of mexican cheese and place the other tortilla on top, with the butter side up.

  7. Flip the tortilla when ready. Then, enjoy!
