Dang Quesadillas

Ever since watching Napolean Dynamite, Jeremy and I call Quesadillas "dang Quesadillas" making sure we use the l like any English Speaking person would! Oh and you can never forget to say the word "dang". That being said, I made some last night....super good that I want to share!

Bean and Cheese Quesadillas
1Tb olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 small green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained, slightly mashed
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 tsp. chili powder
8 oz cheese (reduced fat...if you want)
sour cream and salsa to top

1. heat oil in a large nonskillet over medium high heat. Add onion and green pepper-cook for 4 minutes. Stir in beans, salsa, and chili powder. Cook for 3 minutes.
2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Place one tortilla in the skillet, cook for 1 minute. Spread 1/3 of the bean mixture and 1/3 cheese on top. Place another tortilla on top. Cook for 1 minute, turn over and cook until browned.
3. Place quesadilla on baking sheet to keep warm in a 200 degree oven. Continue with the remaining quesadillas.
4. To serve, cut each quesadilla into quarters.

Really easy and good! Plus....they are low in calories!!!!
