Black Bean Quesadillas

I don’t know about you, but I prefer a quesadilla over a taco any day! There are so many cool ways to make them. 

This week I wanted to try something different. I had a ton of black beans, and fresh tomatoes from the market. You can only do Taco Tuesday so many times. I decided I was going to make quesadillas instead!

Black Bean Quesadillas 

A brief look through the fridge and I realized I had all the ingredients to create! Like an excited child in a candy store I got to chopping and combining. I made a whole video on snapchat about it, haha! If you don’t follow me on snapchat, make sure to do so. I am usually on there making what ends up being a recipe on the blog. 

Anywhooo, these just might be the best quesadillas I’ve ever had. The combination of the fresh tomatoes,  black beans and corn bring together a complete fiesta in your mouth! 

Make this weeks Taco Tuesday a Quesadilla Tuesday with these black bean quesadillas. Bonus points – no one will even know its vegan :-)! 

If you decide to make this I’d love to hear about it! Tag your recreations on instagram using #deliciouslyalethea I’d love to see them! Don’t forget to rate and share!

Peace, Happiness & Love
