red-bean-quesadilla
    I tasted Quesadillas only two times, and both the times I tasted only this red bean quesadillas. I had this once when we went to Raj restaurant, with my in-laws when they visited here. I loved it and again tasted and wanted to try it out at home. I could almost recreate the taste and am so happy with the result. They served it with Tomato Salsa and sour cream dip, it was yummy and tasting great with a buttery smell! Let me share the recipe straight away! Refer here for tortillas recipe.
quesadilla-with-red-bean

Ingredients(filling enough for stuffing 5-6 tortillas)

Red kidney bean 1 can
Yellow onion 1
Tomato 1
Chopped coriander leaves 2 tblsp
Lemon juice 1 tsp
Pepper powder 1/2 tsp
Green chilli 1
Grated mozzarella 1/4 cup
Salt as needed
Tortillas 5-6
Butter/ clarified butter As needed

Method

  1. Drain the bean in the can and wash it. Take it in a bowl and mash it coarsely. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Chop onion and tomato(deseeded), chilli very finely. Mix onion with lemon juice.1-quesadilla
  2. Take a tortilla and spread 3 to 4 tblsp mashed bean and top it with onion, tomato, green chilli, coriander and lastly cheese as shown in the picture. Spread only half of the tortilla.2-quesadilla
  3. Fold it exactly into half to cover the spread completely. Heat a pan and grease with butter/ ghee and arrange the tortilla stuffed with bean. I toasted two at a time. Cook in low flame on both sides until golden brown and crispy. By that time, the cheese will also melt.3-quesadilla
   Cut each in to two quarters and serve hot with tomato salsa and sour cream or a cheesy dip!

Notes
  • You can also spread over fully on a tortilla and close the filling with another tortilla, toast both sides and cut into quarters.
  • While flipping, do carefully. Especially when you do by the above method. I found my method easy, i.e; use a tortilla and fold into a half as shown in the picture.
  • Cheese can be increased or decreased as per your choice. More the cheese, more tasty, but watch out for the calories.
  • One tortilla make 2 quesadillas, it depends also how big you roll and how big you want.
