Veggie and black bean quesadillas

Serves 4 - Vegetarian

7 SmartPoints® Per serving (1 quesadilla, 2 tablespoons yogurt and 2 tablespoons salsa)


  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • 4 (8-inch) whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup salsa


  1. Place bell pepper, zucchini, and corn in medium microwaveable bowl. Cover with wax paper and microwave on High until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 1 1/2 minutes. Drain vegetables and stir in black beans, chili powder, salt, and cilantro.
  2. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over half of each tortilla. Spoon one-fourth of vegetable mixture evenly over cheese. Sprinkle vegetables evenly with remaining cheese. Fold unfilled half of each tortilla filling and press down lightly.
  3. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lightly spray quesadillas on both sides with nonstick spray. Cook two at a time, turning once, until crisp and heated through, about 4 minutes. Cut each quesadilla into wedges and serve with yogurt and salsa.


If you’d like to spice up the quesadilla, add some chopped pickled jalapeños, a few teaspoons minced chipotles en adobo or a dash or two of hot sauce to the vegetables along with the chili powder in step 1.
