Easy Bean & Cheese Quesadilla

This was my lunch today.  It is one of my favorite easy lunches or after school snacks.  Made with a whole grain tortilla, fat-free refried beans, and shredded cheese, it contains a whole grain, a lean protein, and a dairy serving in one dish.  And, when it is served with salsa, you can count a vegetable serving, too.

Here’s the recipe for 1 lunch serving or 2 snack servings:

2 whole grain soft tortillas

1/2 cup canned refried beans (fat-free)

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spread the beans on each of the two tortillas.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Place on a baking sheet and cook in oven for 10 minutes (until cheese is bubbly and browning begins).  When removed from the oven, fold each in half and cut into 3 or 4 triangle pieces.  Serve with your favorite salsa.  Easy and delicious!!
