Black Bean & Goat Cheese Quesadillas

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 6 oz. goat cheese, softened
  • 6 flour tortillas

Heat olive oil until hot, but not smoking. Add onion and sauté until soft. Add black beans, cumin, chili powder, and 1/4 cup of water. Simmer until all water has evaporated. Remove from heat. With the back of a fork, mash the beans and combine the mixture. Add cilantro and season with salt and pepper. Spread on a tortilla and drop dollops of goat cheese. Cover with another tortilla. Brown each side in an oiled skillet over medium high heat. Cut into eight pieces and serve with a dollop of guacamole on top.

Serves 8 as an appetizer or 3 as a main course.
