Breakfast Quesadillas


  • 4 large eggs (or 1 large egg and 3 eggs whites)
  • 1/2 cup black beans (canned)
  • 1/2 cup corn (canned)
  • 1/4 cup red onion (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (chopped)
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1/2 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 3 tortillas

Cooking Instructions

Step 1: Whisk the eggs (or egg and egg whites).

Step 2: Heat a frying pan and scramble the eggs.  Set aside.

Step 3: Rinse and drain the canned black beans and corn.

Step 4: Combine the black beans, corn, scrambled eggs, onion, cilantro, shredded cheese, and taco seasoning in a bowl.

Step 5: Lay out the tortillas and place half of the mixture on one side of each and fold over.  Let come to room temperature.

Step 6: Line a plate or tray with parchment paper.  Place the quesadillas on top and freeze for about 1 hour.

Step 7: Remove and then individually wrap each quesadilla for freezer storage.  Label each bag with the contents and the date.

Step 8: To reheat, you can microwave the quesadilla for about 1 minute until cheese is melted.  You can also heat in a skillet until cheese is melted and tortilla is brown, or warm them in a toaster oven.  Serve with fresh salsa or simply eat them on the go.
