Black Bean and Cheese Quesadilla

Lest you thought Mush was going gentle into that good night, we are back, and with a contributed recipe, no less.

Melissa from A Writer's Woolgatherings posted a fabulous, quick-and-easy lunch recipe for her 2-year-old toddler. I asked her if I could post it here and Voila! Mush's first contributing writer! And while she gave her daughter this quesadilla (which she loved, by the way) for lunch, it would make a great snack or dinner as well.


Two tortillas

Black beans (canned)

Shredded cheddar cheese

Sour cream


1. Drain, rinsed, and mash the black beans.

2. Place one tortilla on a preheated and slightly buttered skillet.

3. Spoon a bit of the black beans onto the tortilla and top with a palmful of shredded cheddar cheese.

4. Place the other tortilla on top.

5. Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

Thanks for posting! (Bridget is 27 months old, although she thinks she is 3 sometimes and tries to do what the big kids are doing). I'll be sure to write a post about MUSH and get you some more contributing writers ;-)

Thank you Melissa! I totally got all these ingredients at the store yesterday and it's on our menu for the week in place of our usual Wednesday pasta (we are so predictable). Kiddos love bread, beans, and cheese, so it seems failproof (ha, famous last words).

PS We made this last night for dinner. It was a HUGE hit with the babes (13 months) and the grown ups liked it, too. Plus, so easy, everyone won. Truthfully, we used pinto beans because we had them, otherwise, we followed her recipe.
