Ingredients

  • 11/2 cups cooked pinto or black beans, or 1 15-oz. can beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup prepared salsa
  • 3 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese (6 Tbs.)
  • 1/4 cup jarred roasted red peppers, rinsed, drained, and chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. chopped cilantro
  • 4 8-inch whole-wheat or multi-grain tortillas

Preparation

1. Blend beans, salsa, cream cheese, roasted peppers, green onions, and cilantro in blender or food processor until mostly smooth.

2. Spread 1/2 cup filling on one half of each tortilla, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges. Fold over tortillas to enclose filling. (If a tortilla’s edges don’t stick together, brush some oil along bottom inside edge.)

3. Coat large skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium heat. Cook quesadillas in skillet 2 to 3 minutes, turning once.
