Cooking is a joy for me! I enjoy it, especially with my 3 year old dear daughter! This is an easy recipe to have her create with me!

Black Bean Quesadillas

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cups chopped plum tomatoes (about 6 medium)

1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

2 cups bagged baby spinach leaves

4 (8-inch) whole-wheat flour tortillas 

Cooking spray 

1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded reduced-fat Mexican blend cheese

1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn

1 cup chopped red bell pepper 

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomato and beans; sauté 3 minutes. Add spinach; sauté 3 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; mash beans slightly.

3. Place tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Top each tortilla with 1/2 cup bean mixture and 1/4 cup cheese; fold in half. Lightly coat tops with cooking spray. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts and tortillas begin to brown. Cut each tortilla into 3 wedges.

4. While quesadillas broil, combine corn and remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes or until warm, stirring frequently. Serve warm salsa with quesadillas.
