Red Bean Quesadilla
Updated: May 15, 2020
If I have to choose between all types of cuisine to eat, I will definitely choose Mexican food. I just can't get enough of that fresh, savoury , deliciously seasoned flavour.
Here is a super easy, fast and delicious meal that you can customise based on your own favourite taste. You can add your own favourite veggies, shredded chicken or beef , sprinkle with your favourite spices, top it with some cheese and definitely must try this with a creamy guacamole or salsa. This is how I made it and it was super delicious, super healthy and full of nutrients!

1. Rinse and drain red beans, chop the pepper, spinach, garlic and the onions.
2. In a large wok, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil or vegetable oil, add sliced pepper, onions, garlic, sautee for 5 minutes, then add the spinach, corn, tomato sauce and the beans, sautee for another 2 minutes and toss them together with the ingredients as well.
3. Place a tortilla wrap on a skillet or wok with 1 tbsp of oil, let it cook for 2 minutes on low heat or until bottom is slightly crispy, flip it over, add cooked veggies to one half of the wrap followed by a layer of cheese. Put both sides together and gently press down.
