grilled hummus “quesadilla”

I spied some wrinkly grape tomatoes on my kitchen counter, a struggling mint plant on my balcony, and a slightly wilted scallion and two lonely lemon wedges in my fridge. So, I created this! Seriously, it tastes way, way, way better than I’m making this sound. I just always look for ways to prevent food waste. Often it results in interesting fixes like this. Try it! It’s Meatless Monday and Earth Month friendly! It’s vegan! And it’s super tasty! Calories Saved: 177 Why it’s better for you? Fiber! Plenty of it!

One of my quick go-to food fixes is a quesadilla. I never seem to make it exactly the same way twice. Here’s my newest version—with a bit of New York flair.

black bean and cheese quesadilla with mango-tequila pico de gallo

  Makes 2 servings: 4 wedges each I was inspired at a recent National Mango Board event. So instead of just providing you with a “tasteover”, I’m providing you with a “mangover”! I developed this recipe with Cinco de Mayo in mind. But please enjoy it anytime you want. Personally, I’ll take this tropical inspired quesadilla over an extra greasy, artery-clogging version any day. The pico de gallo is lightly spiked with tequila for added flair. Though, you can leave it out for the kids, of course. It’s fit for a fiesta … especially while sipping a virgin or not-so-virgin margarita! Calories Saved: 110
