Black bean and butternut squash quesadillas

Hubby and I have been trying to eat healthier. I saw these quesadillas on Lori’s blog and knew that I wanted to try them. We both love butternut squash and these were great. Very filling and delicious.

Black Bean and Butternut Squash Quesadillas – adapted from Lori’s Lipsmacking Goodness

1 med onion chopped – I used a small onion and a 1/2 green pepper
minced chilies, to your liking – I omitted
2 cups butternut squash, cubed and roasted
1 cup cooked black beans
1 clove garlic minced
2 oz cheddar cheese, shredded – I used shredded sheep milk cheese

Saute onions in olive oil till golden. Add garlic and remainder of ingredients, except cheese. Spoon over tortillas. Sprinkle cheese over the filling. Place a tortilla on top. Press. Bake at 375 F.

    those are great!! question, how does using white wheat flour affect the cupcakes? whenever i try this with my baking it makes things so dense so i don’t bother with modifying cupcakes anymore.

    The King Arthur’s white wheat flour is the only flour I use. I’ve never had a problem with it.
