Servings 4


  • pan
  • blender or food processor


  • 1-2 cups black beans (see my recipe)
  • 1-2 handfuls spinach organic
  • 1 handful shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup Your favorite salsa


  • Rinse black beans.
  • Blend beans with a handful (or 2) of spinach and shredded cheese to make a spread for the tortilla.
  • Using ghee, butter or avocado oil, lightly grease the pan.
  • Lay down tortilla over medium heat.
  • Spread a thin layer of the bean mixture on ONE side of the quesadilla, careful not to overfill.
  • Fold and cook on each side until tortilla is crispy.
  • Allow to cool before cutting into triangles (this step keeps it from spilling out of the sides).
  • Serve with salsa for dipping.


Leftovers keep well in the fridge, are easy to reheat and perfect for lunch boxes! Taking the extra step to blend the ingredients together is what makes these quesadilla truly kid-friendly.
