Ingredients

  • 1 8" flour tortilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup black beans drained and rinsed; or pinto
  • fresh salsa for serving

Instructions

  • Spray a large skillet with nonstick spray and heat over medium heat. Next, whisk the eggs together in a bowl, then pour them into the skillet and immediately add the spinach and garlic powder. Stir frequently until the eggs and spinach are cooked, then remove them from the skillet; set aside.
  • Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel. Then, place the skillet back over the heat and add the tortilla. Place the cheese and beans on one side of it, then carefully add the eggs/spinach on top and fold the other side of the tortilla over, using a spatula to press it down.
  • Cook for 1 minute, then carefully flip the tortilla over and cook for 1 more minute or until the cheese has melted.
  • Remove the quesadilla from the skillet, then use a sharp knife of pizza cutter to slice the quesadilla into 3 pieces. Serve with salsa and enjoy!

Notes

*Calories are an estimation 
*Feel free to use kale instead of spinach, pinto beans instead of black beans, and any kind of cheese (goat cheese would be delicious!)
*Storage: I personally prefer to eat this quesadilla right away; however, you can also prep them ahead of time and freeze them: transfer quesadilla to a large plate, then place it in the freezer. Once frozen, transfer quesadilla to a freezer-safe bag for up to 3 months.
