Taco Spice White Bean Pepper Jack Quesadilla. Vegan Recipe

Vegan Taco Spice White Bean Pepper jack Quesadilla

This is a super easy weeknight meal. Toss the beans in taco spice. Layer up your tortilla with the beans and veggies grill and serve!

If you dont want to grill it up, make it into an open faced quesadilla pizza. Broil and serve. Or saute the beans for 5 minutes and make it into a wrap. Some times I just need a quick fix. 

and this is one of those meals. I usually have a side salad with the quesadillas so just one medium wrap quesadilla is enough for me. You can make as many as you like. :)

Did I tell you that I love you all so much! thank you for all the excited emails, love and sharing my journey. I am in the process of sorting and replying to the emails.

Layer the beans, chopped red bell pepper, salsa or sliced veggies, cilantro on the tortilla half. Add daiya pepper jack or make your own pepperjack and shred. 

Fold and grill. Or top with another tortilla and grill. I grilled mine on the panini grill.

    I recently had vegan quesadillas at a restaurant (and reviewed it on my blog) and I was blown away. I’ve been thinking about them ever since and wondering how I could recreate them at home. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us :) (And I can’t wait to hear more about your book!!)

    Hey Richa!

    Just added this to my meal plan for the coming week. Quick question: you say to add taco seasoning or seasoning of choice and then list several spices- are the dry spices listed in place of a store bought taco seasoning or are they in addition to that??

    Thank you!!
