What's for Dinner?

Black Bean and Spinach Quesadillas
Even my picky 14 year old exclaimed that they were really good!
Ingredients:  1/4 cup chopped onion; 10 oz package frozen spinach; 1 can black beans drained; 2 tsps lemon juice; 1 TBS olive oil; 1 tsp garlic powder; 1 tsp cumin; 1 tsp chili powder; salt to taste; flour tortillas; 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese.

Cook spinach in a bit of water just until thawed then drain well.  Saute onion in olive oil til wilted then add the spinach, black beans and lemon juice.  Add spices and cook 5-7 minutes or until heated through.  Spray a pan with cooking spray, place a tortilla in the pan and top  with cheese, then the spinach mixture, another layer of cheese and add another tortilla on top.  Cook on both sides until golden brown.  Serve with sour cream and salsa or enchilada sauce.

A friend sent me the recipe by email years ago so I don't know where it came from but it's quick and easy and oh so yummy.
Time to do some more stash busting.

Goodnight!

Thanks for the idea, Tammy. I think I'll do something similar to this tonight, minus the spinach since I don't have that on hand, for just Sarah and I since we're alone tonight (Jim is away on business).

Happy new week to you,
Linda

That does sound good! I'll have to try it as I am eating less and less meat it seems. I will probably never make it to vegetarian but I'm doing my level best! Plus, if a 14 year old likes it it's got to be really good! They don't like anything do they? LOL!

This sounds delicious and I know my husband would love them. Lots of good-for-you fiber, too. Think we'll have them for dinner later this week.

Kids love quesadillas - and what a great way to get some spinach into a picky teenager. :)

These look fantastic. I love anything cheesy and spinach-y.

I've never added spinach but that would add some flavor and good vitamins to this dish! I may make this soon! I make my own tortillas...they are really easy to make. Sweet hugs!
