The quesadilla is queen in our house. It’s one of a handful of foods that every one of us will eat, and happily. And while my son prefers the plainest of the plain cheese quesadillas, the rest of us have a healthy obsession with quesadillas filled with black beans, cheddar cheese, and salsa verde. Now, regular old quesadillas are loved just fine, but when we fold them into handy little wraps, things become next level.
(Disclaimer: I used foldable tortillas for these photos, which I took a while ago. I’ve discovered that now they’re hard to find. You can still fold a regular round quesadilla into a square wrap pretty easily, but it make take a couple of tries to make it look pretty, if you care about quesadilla aesthetics.)
Cheese and Black Bean Quesadilla Wraps
4 large tortillas
1 15 ounce can black beans, rinsed
1/2 cup guacamole or mashed avocado
1/2 cup salsa verde
salt, chili powder, and garlic powder to taste
In a large skillet or griddle, melt the coconut oil over medium heat. Place tortillas on a flat surface and top each one with equal amounts of cheddar cheese, black beans, salsa verde, and guacamole. Sprinkle on spices, then fold tortilla sides in and tuck closed. Cook each quesadilla over low to medium heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, turning every minute, until each side is golden. Remove quesadillas from pan and serve.
