When I am working at home, this is my go-to lunch. It’s also a great after school snack. I always have these ingredients on-hand. Made with a whole grain tortilla, fat-free refried beans, and shredded cheese, it contains a whole grain, a lean protein, and a dairy serving in one dish. And, when it is served with salsa, you can count a vegetable serving, too.

Easy Bean & Cheese Quesadilla (1 lunch serving or 2 snack servings)
2 whole grain soft tortillas
1/2 cup canned refried beans (fat-free)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread the beans on each of the two tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese. Place on a baking sheet and cook in oven for 10 minutes (until cheese is bubbly and browning begins). When removed from the oven, fold each in half and cut into 3 or 4 triangle pieces. Serve with your favorite salsa. Easy and delicious! Enjoy!
