Black Bean & Mango Quesadillas

Do you want take-away food, but can't be bothered going out? Or perhaps you're just really hungry and don't know what to do with that little piece of leftover avocado in the fridge, oooor you happen to be vegetarian? Well my friend, this recipe ticks all of those boxes, and I am sure herbivores, omnivores and carnivores alike will love this recipe - I sure did!

Black Bean & Mango Quesadillas
(Serves 2, about 365 calories each)

1 tsp olive oil
1 medium small onion, sliced
1 tsp dried oregano
Salt and pepper
1/2 - 1 chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1/2 can (120g) black beans, drained and rinsed
100g jarred mango, sliced
50g avocado, diced
1 mozzarella ball
2 wholemeal tortillas

- Start by pre-heating your oven on high heat.

- In a small frying pan, heat the oil and tip in the onion, oregano, salt and pepper. Soften for about five minutes, before tipping in the beans. Stir well and heat through for a couple of minutes.

- Turn off the hob and take the pan off the heat, and stir through the avocado and mango. Top two tortillas with half of the mix on each, and top with chopped or sliced mozzarella on top. Sprinkle with a little more pepper and oregano, and pop it in the oven. Bake until the cheese is nice and melted! How you eat it is up to you of course, I folded mine over. This was really delicious!

Leftovers can make great lunches for the next day, or great to top a salad with or just have on it's own, maybe with some melted cheese over perhaps? Mm-M-Mh!
