More About This Recipe
  • Vegetarian quesadillas don’t have to be boring and this recipe proves it! These black bean quesadillas are filled with flavor and texture from corn, beans, Cuban seasoning, cilantro and garlic. Cuban seasoning blends usually combine dried onion, bell peppers, garlic, oregano and cumin for a huge burst of flavor, which can sometimes be missing from vegetarian dishes. For a healthy dose of fat and even more flavor, serve these with sliced avocados and your favorite salsa. This is an excellent recipe to prep ahead as you can make the mixture, then refrigerate until you’re ready to make the quesadillas. Another bonus: You can easily double or triple this recipe to serve to a crowd. Need a recipe for a meat lover? Explore the rest of Betty’s delicious quesadilla recipes.
