Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil preferably a fruit-infused oil (I used an orange-infused one)
  • 1 large zucchini diced
  • 1 can pinto beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 peaches diced
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 large tortillas
  • Salsa for serving
  • Optional: avocado or guacamole

Instructions

  • Place oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add diced zucchini and sauté until browned on both sides, about 3-4 min. Add pinto beans, cumin, chili powder and salt. Cook another 2-3 minutes, or until beans are warmed through. Remove from heat and add diced peaches. Set aside.
  • Lightly grease a large skillet with cooking spray, oil or butter. Place one tortilla on skillet and cover tortilla with shredded cheese. Once cheese starts melting and bottom of tortilla is a light golden brown, spoon filling mixture over half the tortilla. Fold the other tortilla half over the filling and let cook 2-3 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer quesadilla to a cutting board and cut into thirds. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve with salsa and enjoy! Note: avocado slices would also be delicious mixed in or on top!
