BBQ Black Bean Quesadilla

Need a quick, easy and satisfying meal?  If you love bbq - you'll love these.  Soft, warm tortillas with a generous filling of gooey cheese, sweet and tangy bbq sauce, a little sharpness from red onion and all with the satisfaction of meatiness . . .without the meat.  Perfect for a quick meal for yourself . . or make a whole bunch and feed them to the family!  Please note, in the photo below - I used a whole wheat tortilla/low carb - the tortilla looks burnt because of it!  Use whatever kind of tortillas you enjoy.  

BBQ Black Bean Quesadilla
Serves 1

1 TB BBQ Sauce
2 8-inch Tortillas
1/3 Cup Black Beans (from a can, rinsed)
1/4 Cup Cheese (cheddar, cojack, mexi-blend . . whatever you like!)
1-2 Tablespoons of Diced Red Onion
Non Stick Vegetable Oil Spray

Spray a large skillet with nonstick spray.  Preheat on stove-top over low heat.    Place 1 tortilla in the skillet.  Brush with the BBQ sauce.  Disburse the black beans on top of the black beans.  Sprinkle the beans with the cheese. Disburse the onion over the cheese.  Top with remaining tortilla.  Let cook over low for 3-5 minutes, or until bottom is browning.  Then, carefully flip the quesadilla over and cook another 3-5 minutes until that side is browned as well.  Transfer to a cutting board and slice it with a pizza cutter or sharp knife.  Serve hot.
