2 quesadillas


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup rinsed and drained canned black beans

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 whole wheat tortillas

  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (Optional)

  • ¼ cup salsa, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; sauté mushrooms and onion in hot oil until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add black beans, cilantro, salt, and pepper; continue sautéing until mushrooms and onions are browned, 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.

  2. Place 1 tortilla in a clean, dry skillet. Spread 1/2 of the mushroom mixture onto 1/2 of tortilla. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and lime juice; fold tortilla over filling. Cook over medium heat until quesadilla is browned and crispy, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer quesadilla to a cutting board. Repeat this step with second tortilla.

  3. Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve with salsa.


You may use any cheese in this recipe, and anything can be added to spice the recipe up! My favorite additions are corn, chicken, green chiles, tomatoes, yellow, orange, or red peppers, zucchini, and even black olives.
