Veg and Bean Quesadilla

Quesadilla is a wheat or corn tortilla filled with a savory mixture containing cheese, vegetables or meat and then cooked on a griddle then folded in half to serve. In  central and southern region of Mexico, quesadilla is a flat circle called tortilla, warmed to soften and filled with cheese and cooked until  cheese is completely melted. They are often served with salsa and Guacamole. 

Quesadillas have been adapted to many different countries, they are served as appetizers or as a snack. This delicious bean and veg quesadilla goes for the 2nd day of BM 53, under the theme Tortilla based dishes. 




Ingredients:

Tortilla  2
Black beans 1 can
Tomato 1 cup chopped
Onion 1 cup chopped
Cilantro chopped 1/2 cup
Sweet corn 1 cup
Bell pepper 1 cup ( any color)
Mexican blend cheese 1 cup
Mozzarella cheese 1 cup
Salt to taste
Black pepper powder 1 spoon



Preparation:

I used canned black beans here, so remove and wash the beans thoroughly under running water.Have used frozen sweet corn so thaw the corn before using.
Mix all the ingredients except cheese in a bowl.
Add salt to taste.
Add 1 spoon or more black pepper powder.
If you like u can crush the black beans little bit to make the filling soft.
Heat a skillet and cook the tortilla for few seconds on both the  sides. 
Fill 1/2 of the tortilla  with the seasoned veggies and sprinkle some cheese on top.



Fold it to 1/2 and cook on both the sides till the tortilla becomes little crunchy and crisp.
remove and cut to 3 or 4 pieces.
Serve immediately with salsa and Guacamole.
