Leahs Bean Dip Quesadillas Recipe

















Quick and easy lunch or dinner idea I made for today's lunch - Used my Colorful Wonderful Cilantro Bean Dip (recipe posted) along with caramelized onions and fresh peppers made for a super tasty meal.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium size flour tortillas per person
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1/2 cup "colorful wonderful cilantro bean dip" or less per quesadilla
  • 1 ounce of Monterey JalapeƱo cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • a little pat of butter
  • skillet
  • Sour cream for dipping
  • Freshly cut chives for serving. (See Photo)

Directions:
  1. You are going to caramelize the onions first then add cut peppers for only a short cooking time so that they stay crisp.
  2. You can use the same skillet to make and cook the quesadillas.
  3. You could also grill these or do them in the oven, or oven in your panini grill or waffle iron- which ever is easier for you.
  4. In skillet, add a little olive oil and add cut onions. Cook on medium heat and allow them to caramelize naturally and slowly.
  5. After about 5 minutes, add peppers and cook for additional 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove peppers and onions from skillet.
  7. One one side of quesadilla add half of shredded cheese, and pepper and onion mixture, then add bean dip, dash of salt and pepper and then lastly add a layer of cheese.
  8. Close up quesadilla with another flour tortilla. Press down
  9. Add a small pat of butter to hot skillet, carefully slide in quesadilla.
  10. Cook for 5 minutes or less until browned underneath, then flip and cook on the other side.
  11. Take out of skillet once done, cut up, add a dollop of sour cream if you wish and sprinkle some cut chives on top.
  12. Call troops to table and eat up! Enjoy!
