It’s no secret that we love swiss chard. In fact holding an armful of swiss chard on a hot summer morning is my idea of heaven.
Actually, a truck full of chard with my friend Amanda hiding back there may be my idea of heaven. I’m not quite sure though!
Either way you get the point. We grow a lot of chard and today I want to give it a little love. These quesadillas are easy and ready in a flash. Play with the recipe and add whatever you wish. The idea is to make them easy and ready in just a few minutes. Enjoy!
Swiss Chard and Black Bean Quesadilla
2 whole tortillas (we used spelt flour tortillas)
1/2 bunch of swiss chard, stems removed and torn into bit size pieces
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 cup of black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 yellow onion, diced
1/3 cup of shredded cheese (we used sharp cheddar)
In a large skillet saute’ your onion and jalapeno pepper in a little olive oil for 2-3 minutes. Add black beans and chard. Cook for about 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and place mixture into a bowl. Add a little more oil to the same pan and add one of the tortillas. Add some shredded cheese, half the bean mixture, some hot sauce, followed by a little more cheese. Place the other tortilla on top and fry for about 3-5 minutes per side. Enjoy!
