Black Bean Quesadillas with Garlicky Shishito Peppers (Vegetarian)

SERVES: 1 to 2 servings
  • 4 ounces shishito peppers (roughly 2 cups)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed if using canned
  • 3 tablespoons minced corriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 2 10″ whole wheat tortillas
  • 3 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Prepare the peppers by cutting into 1/4″ thick slices and removing the stem. Heat a large pan or griddle over medium heat. Add olive oil followed by the peppers. Sauté until the pepper pieces are browning and beginning to blister, 5 or so minutes.
  2. Add the garlic to the pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant and golden. Measure in black beans then corriander, salt, and lime juice. Stir and cook until the beans are warm, another 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a bow and set aside.
  3. Turn the skillet down to low heat. Working with one tortilla at a time, divide cheese in half and spread evenly over one side of the tortilla. Add half the bean mixture to the tortilla and let cook until cheese starts to melt and tortilla begins to brown. Fold in half, cooking the tortilla on each side until crisp and brown. Repeat with second tortilla.
