Avocado, Black Bean and Wilted Greens Quesadilla

This isn't so much a recipe as throwing together a bunch of great ingredients for a very quick meal.  A healthy and delicious meal!  I love the greens added just after the quesadillas are removed from the pan so they are only very slightly wilted and still have some good texture. 

Makes 6-10 tortillas (folded in half).

1/2 medium white onion, sliced
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
Avocado slices
Cheddar cheese, grated
Greens (I used arugula and baby spinach)
Corn Tortillas
Sour Cream

Saute the onions until softened then add the black beans and heat through.  Add a squeeze or two of lime juice for flavour plus a pinch of salt.

In a fry pan, heat a small amount of oil.  Prepare the tortilla by layering (on one half) some avocado slices (salt lightly), black bean/onion mixture, grated cheese and a teaspoon or so of salsa.   Fold the tortilla in half and place in fry pan. Lightly brown on each side and ensure the cheese is melted.

As soon as the quesadilla is removed from the pan, add a small amount of the mixed greens.  The cheese will still be hot so it should easily pull apart to add the greens.  Then fold it back together and the greens will very lightly wilt from the heat.

Serve with sour cream and more salsa.
