Pam's Vegetarian Quesadilla

Friday was my last day at work and for the past six months I had the pleasure of sitting next to this awesome and very funny girl named Pam. She sent me this picture from her phone (shout out to the Droid!) of a quesadilla she made for dinner. While the picture is slightly blurry, you can tell it looks very yummy! The recipe is quick, easy, healthy and filling. Enjoy!

Pam's Vegetarian Quesadillas
(Makes 3 quesadillas)

1 can organic black beans
1 whole tomato, diced
1/2 white onion, chopped
2/3 cup shredded cheese, (Pam recommends Monterrey and Cheddar)
1/2 avocado, sliced
3 whole wheat tortillas

1. In a pan, saute the black beans, tomato, and onion. Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes.
2. Place a tortilla on a plate and sprinkle the cheese on it, place the avocado slices on it. Microwave the plate for 30 seconds.
3. Place the bean mixture on the tortilla, fold, press, enjoy!
