Black Bean Quesadilla

Quesadillas, basically tortilla turnovers are and excellent way to utilize just about any leftovers from shrimp and chicken to yes even black beans.

The simplest fillings of freshly roasted Pablano Chiles is one of my favorite.

Filling combinations are endless, so play around with whatever you may have on hand to discover a true culinary delight.
