Recipe: Black Bean & Onion Quesadillas

You know what Monday means! We're going MEATLESS!

I've gotta say this whole Meatless Monday thing has been fun! It has forced me to look beyond my usual chicken recipes. And since I've been looking at recipes and pictures for inspiration, it has influenced me to make other meals meatless, not just on Mondays! :)

My husband is a quesadilla person. He orders them frequently when we're at restaurants that serve them. He said these might be the best ones I've ever made. And that beats out his usual favorite; the buffalo chicken quesadilla! :)

I've been using FlavorGod's seasonings alot and I know a lot of people don't have them, or don't even know what they are. FlavorGod offers 7 different types of seasoning. I HIGHLY recommend purchasing the combo pack for $27.99 on his site. CLICK HERE Once you taste the difference in these seasonings you will find yourself only using them. If you use these in your recipes, you will find that you ONLY need these, no other salts or seasonings. It makes cooking simple...and delicious!

If you don't have FlavorGod, I suggest mixing together some garlic powder, onion powder, and basil to create a similar taste. (Totally not the same though)

Also, for some quick guacamole, I mashed up 2 avocados, added a couple squirts of lime juice, and sprinkled in some FlavorGod Garlic Lover's seasoning. It's was really good & simple quac! 

Black Bean & Onion Quesadillas
What you’ll need:
1 tbsp EVOO
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ small onion, chopped
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp FlavorGod Garlic Lover’s Seasoning
½ lime, or 1 tbsp lime juice
2 cups shredded cheese (I used Colby jack and cheddar mix)
4 whole wheat tortillas

What you do:
In a medium sized skillet, heat EVOO and garlic until golden and fragrant.
Add chopped onion and sauté until soft.
Add black beans and garlic seasoning and stir to combine.
Squeeze the lime juice over the black bean filling.
Set aside in bowl.
In same skillet, spray with cooking spray and place 1 tortilla in skillet.
Place a couple spoonful’s of the filling on one side of the tortilla.
Sprinkle cheese on tortilla and fold over.
Cook in skillet on both sides until outside is crispy and cheese has melted.
Serve with guacamole and/or sour cream.
