  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup vegan cheese, shredded


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the black beans, onion, bell pepper, garlic powder, smoked paprika, chili powder, cumin, and salt. Stir until well combined.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the black bean mixture to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Lay out two of the tortillas on a work surface. Divide the black bean mixture between the two tortillas and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle the vegan cheese over the black bean mixture. Top each quesadilla with the remaining two tortillas.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place one of the quesadillas in the skillet and cook until golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining quesadilla.
  5. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges and serve immediately.
