Reader's Recipe: Black Bean Quesadillas for the Whole Family

This week's Reader's Recipe is another easy and yummy recipe from my friend Sarah. I made these for dinner on Friday, and my little guy loved them (and so did I!)


2 Whole Wheat Tortillas
1/4 - 1/2 avacado (depending on how much you like)
roughly 1/4 c. black beans (or more or less depending on your tastes)
Shredded Mexican blend cheese (you can use reduced fat/light for Mommy, but for Katy I use the real deal)

Set a medium skillet over medium to medium high heat on the stove.

With a fork, mash up desired amount of avacado. Set aside. Again using a fork, mash up desired amount of black beans (if your baby is still little, you might want to use a food processor to get a smoother consistency for the avacado and the black beans)

Take 1 flour tortilla and spread avacado and black beans on. Place the tortilla in the heated skillet. Add desired amount of cheese. Top with remaining tortilla. Press the tortillas together with the spatula. cook for a few minutes, then flip quesadilla to cook for a few more minutes on the other side.

Remove from pan, cut into pieces and enjoy! For Katy, I let it cool down, and then just tear off pieces. I made hers using 1 tortilla and cutting it in half and she ate the whole thing!

When your baby gets older, you can add in a small amount of very mild salsa, or some shredded chicken or turkey. I use it as a way to get Katy some ingredients she won't eat by themselves.
