Zucchini Quesadillas

I wanted to share a super easy, super healthy, super cheap favorite meal around my house...not to mention super YUMMY!! My boys love to help cook and this recipe is very kid friendly.

Seriously, this is all the beans, zucchini, cheese and tortillas.

Drain and rinse the black beans, then put into a large bowl. Have your best helpers wash up...then start mashing! If you're kiddo's don't like to get messy then they can use a fork, but my little guys LOVE to squeeze beans through their little pudgy fingers.

While the kids are busy with that, peel and grate the zucchini. Squeeze all the water out of the grated zucchini...another jobs the kids love.

Mix the mashed black beans, zucchini, and grated cheese. Sorry, I never measure my ingredients...just use how much you like...
Put on half a tortilla, fold, cook in pan....I usually butter my pan, but you can use a cooking spray.

Serve with your favorite salsa, guacamole, or sour cream. My kids know that there is zucchini in them, but if you want to be sneaky you can. Zucchini has such a mild flavor your kids won't notice!
