Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) butter or dairy-free butter
  • 8 large eggs
  • cups (170 g) shredded cheddar cheese or dairy-free cheese
  • 1 cup (170 g) canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (165 g) frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • ½ cup (55 g) finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup (15 g) chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 teaspoon (2.7 g) ground chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon (2 g) ground cumin
  • Kosher or fine sea salt , to taste
  • 6 large gluten-free tortillas

Instructions

  • Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium. Whisk the eggs together in a large bowl. Add to the skillet and scramble the eggs until cooked through. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and cool for 10 minutes.
  • To the bowl of eggs, add the cheese, beans, corn, onion, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, and salt, to taste. Mix to combine. Lay the tortillas on a flat work surface. Place the egg mixture on half of each tortilla. Fold each tortilla over to create half-moon shaped quesadillas.
  • Place the quesadillas on a plate in between pieces of parchment paper and freeze until firm, about 1 hour. Remove from the freezer and individually wrap each quesadilla. Store in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  • To reheat, transfer frozen quesadillas to the refrigerator the night before eating them. In the morning they can be heated in a skillet, toaster oven, or microwave until warm.
