  1. Blend great Northern beans, 3/4 cup tomatoes, and garlic in a food processor until smooth; add nutritional yeast, cumin, chili powder, salt, and red pepper flakes and blend again.
  2. Transfer bean mixture to a bowl. Stir black beans and 1/4 cup tomatoes into bean mixture.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Place a tortilla in the hot oil. Spread about 1/4 cup filling onto the tortilla.
  5. Place another tortilla on top of filling; cook until filling is warmed, about 10 minutes.
  6. Spray the top tortilla with cooking spray and flip quesadilla to cook the second side until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

These were amazing! I added some chopped yellow bell pepper and spread avocado on one of the tortillas. Hint - get the tortillas really crunchy...mmmmm for sure having these again.
