INGREDIENTS

1 lb. ground beef

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 onion, diced

1 tbsp. Taco Seasoning

2 tbsp. tomato paste

8 oz. canned black beans, rinsed and drained

1/4 c. Chopped cilantro

Canola oil, for frying

4 large flour tortillas

DIRECTIONS

In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, brown beef, breaking up with a wooden spoon. Season with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper. Sauté with garlic and onion until softened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add Mexican seasoning, tomato paste, 1 tbsp water and black beans; cook on medium-low for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and mix in avocado and cilantro.

Warm a large non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp oil. Place flour tortilla in pan and sprinkle half with cheese, beef mixture and more cheese. Fold tortilla over and fry lightly on both sides until cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining tortillas. To save time, use 2 non-stick pans.

Cut quesadillas into wedges and serve with lime wedges and sour cream.
