Refried Bean Quesadillas

I have discovered that my kids will wolf down just about anything in tortilla. This is a great way to get them to eat beans, and especially refried beans. So tonight was Seis de Mayo at our house (sort of a continued celebration of the Mexican victory over the French) with some Tequila Chili Lime Tofu and these addictive quesadillas.

INGREDIENTS
- 1 can low fat vegetarian refried beans
- minced sweet onion
- shredded vegan cheese
- small wheat tortillas

METHOD
Heat a cast iron pan over medium heat
1. Spread a thick layer of refried beans on half of a torilla. Top with some diced onion and cheese. Fold tortillas in half. Cook in pan for 2-3 mins per side, until golden and cheese is melted.

I also made this utterly amazing nacho dip. It is a tester recipe from Happy Herbivore's upcoming cookbook. It is really, really great.

my husband also eats anything with a tortilla... how the mondo tacos were born.

By the way, your boys are wise beyond their years. Everything is good in a tortilla and, better yet, everything belongs in a tortilla. It's the perfect food transportation device.

The tequila tofu sounds awesome! My husband loves quesadillas, etc, so I'll be sure to pass this recipe on. The previous post on paneer looks great, too! Cheese was the last thing that I, "gave up," (because of course, in hindsight, I am glad to be rid of that cow-killing stuff!)
