Vegetarian Quesadilla

Vegetarian Quesadilla

Quesadillas are such an easy and quick way to prepare a quick meal either for yourself or for your family. You can use any kind of filling desired or just cheese, and always fold them into Soft Taco Wraps

I think that’s what makes quesadillas special is that they make everyone happy regardless of your diet preferences. Even for vegans, there are now good vegan cheeses available that can be used to make them, so make sure to try them!

These black bean and corn vegetarian quesadillas are so delicious and not spicy at all. You can choose to add the Fire Roasted Serranos before making this vegetarian quesadilla recipe, or leave them out if you are planning on giving them to little ones. Either way, we know you’ll love them!

How to make it

  1. Heat up the olive oil in a frying pan and add the onion, stir and cook gently. Add the yellow pepper, corn kernels, oregano, pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper, stir and let it cook for a minute or two.
  2. Add the Cantina Beans and a bit of vegetable stock into the pan. Simmer on a low heat for 6-7 minutes and stir from time to time. Remove from the heat and add the freshly chopped coriander on top, then set aside.
  3. Get your Soft Taco Wraps and add a good spoonful of the bean and corn filling. Add grated cheese and fold in half, then repeat the same with the rest of the tortillas and cheese.
  4. Place your quesadillas into a non-stick pan until the cheese is lovely and gooey and the surface of the tortilla is golden brown on both sides.
  5. Serve your quesadillas warm, with Fire Roasted Serranos on the side. Enjoy!

This recipe is delicious! It’s so easy to make, but the end result is very satisfying; it’s a recipe that we keep coming back to!
The Gran Luchito refried beans are a little on the spicy side compared to what we’re used to, but combined with manchego cheese and the vegetable mix it is a super tasty, and very quick, meal.
