Black Bean Zucchini Quesadillas

Black bean zucchini quesadillas make a great combo for this kid-friendly snack.

Black Bean Zucchini Quesadillas Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup black beans, cooked
  • 1 tablespoon salsa
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped zucchini
  • 3 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese


First, you have to cook your beans.

  • 2 Cups of Black Beans, sorted, cleaned and washed

Soak the Black Beans overnight if possible, but a couple of hours will do fine.

After they have soaked, rinse them and put in a pot with about 8 cups of water (NOTE: if during the cooking process the water runs low add more hot water).

Cook until the beans are soft. Cooking time will vary based on soaking time of your beans; just taste them every so often. Wait to salt your beans until they are done soaking, so at this point, you can salt to taste.  Set the beans aside.

Next –

  1. Combine your cooked beans and salsa in a small bowl; smash with a fork. Stir in zucchini.
  2. Spread tortilla with the bean zucchini mash, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese. Top with another tortilla. Repeat procedure until out of ingredients.
  3. Broil quesadillas 1 minute on each side until cheese is melted and bubbly.
