Need an easy Light dinner? It's Tortilla Time!

We had a really busy night last night trying to get our ring toss game finished for the Purim Carnival. We had to drink A LOT of sparkling water!!! Needless to say, I lost track of time and suddenly EVERYONE was starving, so, I had to whip something up quick. The boys had cheese quesadilla with sour cream...Daddy had spice beef quesadilla, but I had some truly delicious quesadilla...try 'em out...

Delicately Divine Veggie Quesadillas

about 1T butter
1/4 onion, sliced thinly
1-2T chopped red pepper
4 stalks of asparagus
1/3 can black beans, smashed
1/4c Peach mango salsa

2 Tortillas

Saute the onions down until translucent, then add in the chopped red pepper and asparagus. (You can cook the red pepper with the onions, but I wanted them a little more firm which is why I waited to toss them in). Allow to cook down over Med-Low heat..giggling the pan every now and again.

Drain your beans and rinse. Then, put about 1/3 of the can on a plate and get a little frustration out smashing your beans. I used a potato masher, but a spoon would work. Just smash, don't puree...some whole beans are fine! Then, add to the onion mix in the pan along with the salsa. Stir it up and allow to simmer for a minute or two. Once all the flavors meld together...wrap it up. You can wrap in a tortilla or make it quesadilla style with a little shredded cheese.

These quesadillas were awesome the asparagus makes them a little salty and crunchy while the peach salsa adds a dab of sweetness. I will DEF. make these again. You can use any type of salsa you have, but if you can find a peach is worth trying out!!!
