Who doesn’t love a quesadilla? They are one of the quickest and easiest meals and the stuffing possibilities are endless!
In fact we’ve been on a real quesadilla kick these days and can’t stop eating them! For lunches I’ve been loving the Red Pepper Hummus + Salsa Quesadilla. And for snacks my son has been loving the Spanakopita Quesadilla (also a favorite of mine!).
So for dinner, we’re continuing the trend and going with a long time favorite, these Veggie Bean Quesadillas.
These are stuffed with our favorite Mexican Veggie Bean Mix which we’ve been making for years and which works equally well on a quesadilla, sweet potato, burrito or taco! The versatility of the mix makes if perfect for feeding a family with different tastes or preferences, or for just switching it up!
It’s simply 5 real, whole food ingredients + spices + your favorite gluten-free tortillas (we have been loving Siete Foods Almond Flour Tortillas). The 5 main ingredients are: carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms, squash, and black beans.
The Mexican Spice Blend is simply a mix of cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. It’s not too spicy because that’s how my family prefers it but feel free to amp it up to taste!
The veggies and beans are sauteed and cooked up with the spice blend, then you make your quesadilla with the mix as the filling… that’s it!
Want to take a peak inside the quesadilla?
You can enjoy these quesadillas as is or topped with avocado, guacamole, sour cream or fresh cilantro.
We love this meal not only because it tastes great but because the vegetable bean mix can be prepped ahead or fully made ahead and heated up when you’re ready to eat. So it is perfect for days when you’re out and about and come home hungry or for days when people are eating at different times.
This is easy, make-ahead meal is also a great gluten-free, grain-free (we used and love Siete Almond Flour Tortillas!) way to enjoy Taco Tuesday!
And leftovers make a great lunch the next day!
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
