  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; saute mushrooms and onions until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add black beans, cilantro, salt, and pepper; saute until mushrooms and onions are lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  2. Place tortillas in a clean, dry skillet. Evenly distribute mushroom mixture onto 1 half of each tortilla. Top filling with mozzarella cheese and lime juice; fold each tortilla over filling. Turn burner to medium heat and cook until quesadillas are browned and crispy, about 2 minutes per side. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa.

Loved it.. Added corn and shredded carrots

A great blend of flavors with the mild creaminess of the melted mozzarella cheese allowing the flavor of the black beans to come through.
