Veggie and Bean Quesadillas

This is one of our quick and easy staple recipes. It is also WW-friendly.

Ingredients (enough for 3 quesadillas; 1 for me, 2 for Matt)
6 six-inch fat free flour tortillas, preferably with a healthy amount of fiber
1 cup fat free refried beans
1/2 package of taco seasoning
1 cup 2% mexican cheese (or other 2% cheese variety)
1/2 of a zucchini, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped 1/3 onion, chopped
3-5 large mushrooms, chopped
Olive oil for sauteeing
2 Tbsp. reduced fat sour cream per quesadilla

Chop all of the veggies and sautee with a small amount of olive oil. Meanwhile, mix the refried beans and taco seasoning. Heat for about 1 minute in the microwave to soften the bean mixture.
Assemble by placing 1/3 of the bean mixture on one of the tortillas. Add 1/3 of the veggie mixture and 1/3 cup of the cheese. Top with the other tortilla. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Place the quesadilla on the skillet. No oil or spray is needed. When the bottom tortilla is golden brown, flip and brown the other side.

Serve with 2 Tbsp. reduced-fat sour cream.

I love the way the toasty tortilla tastes. It's hard to believe this is mostly guilt-free!

WW Points per quesadilla: 7 points.

TIP: You can also add in some ground turkey, seasoned with the taco seasoning. I suppose you could use soy crumbles, too, if you're into that sort of thing...
