Black Bean & Pepper Veggie Quesadillas Your Family Will Love + Giveaway!

I love eating Mexican food and now that I'm trying to include more veggies in my diet, I'm looking for healthy ways to enjoy my favorite Mexican dishes.

Tacos are my go-to Mexican meal and I also enjoy making cheesy chips - melted cheese on top of tortilla chips. But I'm feeling the need to switch it up a bit.

Today I'm going to show you how to make Veggie Quesadillas with Black Beans and Bell Peppers using Crystal Farms® cheese.

Crystal Farms® has been making cheese since 1926. During the past 25 years, the people of Lake Mills, Wisconsin have been producing cheese that is gluten-free, rich in calcium and has few preservatives. You can find Crystal Farms cheese products in you refrigerated dairy section.

Black Bean & Pepper Veggie Quesidilias

Here's what you need to make my tasty twist on regular quesadillas.


Crystal Farms® shredded cheese (I used the Mexican variety)

Large tortillas

Black beans

Red, orange, and green peppers

Diced tomatoes with chiles

Oil for pan/skillet


First, saute the peppers in a little bit of oil until tender. Then, lightly oil your pan/skillet on oil heat. Take one large tortilla and top with Crystal Farms shredded cheese. Add peppers, black beans, and diced tomatoes on top of the cheese. Finish by adding another large tortilla. Cut pizza-style into wedges and serve immediately.
