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.

Toss the beans in taco seasoning, lemon juice and let sit while you prep the other ingredients. 

Make fresh salsa with a ripe tomato, red onion, cilantro and green chili chopped and mixed with a pinch of salt, pepper and lemon juice. Or just slice up the tomatoes, onion and cilantro and top the spiced beans. 

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.
