Last Nights Dinner

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

If there is one thing I love to eat, its texmex. Mmmm! Its my favorite.
So I made some quesadillas on sunday night- because I had seen a recipe for them and it sounded so yummy. I added some goya mexican rice and some homemade guacamole to the dish as well.


Black bean and corn mixture:

1 cup corn
1 cup black beans
1 jalapeno (chopped)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 cup green onions (chopped)
1 tablespoon cilantro (chopped)

1. Mix the corn, black beans, jalapeno, chili powder, cumin, lime juice, green onions and cilantro in a large bowl.

2 tortillas
1/2 cup black bean salsa
1 handful cheese (grated)

1. Melt a touch of butter in a pan.
2. Place a tortilla into the pan.
3. Cover the tortilla with cheese then some of the corn and black bean mixture and top with a handful of cheese and the other tortilla.
4. Cook until the quesadilla is golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted. (I placed a plate onto the quesadilla and flipped it from the pan to the plate and then slid it back into the pan.)

  1. this looks yummy! do you have your recipe for your guacamole on here somewhere? xox

  2. I think i have but here yeah go…

    2-4 avocados
    1 clove of crushed garlic
