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.

    This looks amazing!!! I can’t wait to try it; I always make our own guacamole dip. Not sure why you said to add the avocado at the end unless it is because sometimes it changes color with oxidation (like apples and bananas). Since I make guacamole all the time, here’s a tip I discovered: if you put the avocado seed in with it, the sliced avocado will not change colors. Just take the seed out before serving 🙂
