Black Bean and Goat Cheese Quesadilla

There are many days during the week that I am eating peanut butter and jelly with the boys for lunch, but when I am wanting a little something more this is one of the lunches I often turn to. It is quick and easy to throw together, and my kids sometimes like it too. It could also make a good appetizer.


  • 1/4 cup of Refried Black Beans with Jalapenos
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Fresh Cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of Goat Cheese, crumbled
  • 2 Whole Wheat Tortillas
  • 1/2 Avocado, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon of Butter
 Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat with butter. Spread the black beans onto one of the tortillas, then sprinkle with the cilantro and goat cheese. Press the other tortilla on top and saute in the butter, flipping half way through. Cook until the tortilla is golden brown on both sides. Use a pizza cutter to slice. Serve warm with sliced avocado and garnish with cilantro.
