Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2-3 canned chipotle chiles
  • 2 Tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh oregano or 1/2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 1 tsp EVOO
  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp sherry
  • 12 6" corn or flour tortillas
  • 3 oz cheddar, grated
  • 6 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

Preparation

  1. In a food processor, mix beans, chiles, brown sugar, oregano, cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp salt. Add up to 2 Tbsp water to make a smooth bean spread. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat EVOO over medium high heat. Add mushrooms, onions and garlic and stir to break up. Add cumin, chili powder, black pepper, remaining 1/2 tsp salt, and sherry. Cook until mushrooms and onions are soft and sherry has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
  3. Heat a grill pan over medium high heat (or simply use the mushroom-onion skillet) and spray with cooking spray.
  4. To assemble quesadillas, spread about 1/4 cup bean mixture on one side and sprinkle with 1/2 oz grated cheddar. Add about 1/3 cup mushroom-onion mixture and top with other tortilla. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side until browned and cheddar is melted. Serve with salsa, sour cream, and fresh cilantro.
