Black Bean and Avocado Smash Quesadillas

15 min
These deliciously cheesy quesadillas make a quick mid-week meal.


Step 1
  • Place a frying pan large enough to fit a tortilla over a low heat and add ½ tbsp olive oil.
Step 2
  • Meanwhile, to build the quesadilla, place a whole meal tortilla on to a clean surface. Top with the smashed avocado and the juice of 1 lime, followed by the black beans, red onion, cherry tomatoes, sweetcorn and coriander. Sprinkle with the Arla LactoFREE Mature Cheddar Cheese and place the second whole meal tortilla on top.
Step 3
  • Carefully place the quesadilla into the frying pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, pushing down with a spatula. Gently flip the quesadilla, adding the remaining ½ tbsp olive oil to the pan and repeat this process until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden.
Step 4
  • Once cooked, remove the quesadilla from the pan and place on to a chopping board. Slice into quarters and serve.
