Black Bean Butternut Squash Quesadillas with Chipotle Lime Crema



Author: Girl Versus Dough

Prep time: 15 mins

Cook time: 8 mins

Total time: 23 mins

Yields: 2 servings

Ingredients

For the chipotle lime crema:

½ cup sour cream

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 chipotle chile from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce

Zest and juice of ½ lime


For the quesadillas:

½ cup mashed cooked butternut squash

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

1½ teaspoons taco seasoning

½ teaspoon lime juice

2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil

2 flour tortillas

¼ cup canned (rinsed and drained) black beans

¼ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese


Directions

To make the chipotle lime crema: Process all of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Adjust to taste, if needed (add more chipotle chiles, more garlic, maybe a dash of salt, etc.). Set aside to thicken up slightly.

Meanwhile, make the quesadillas: In a small bowl, combine the butternut squash, cilantro, taco seasoning and lime juice. Adjust to taste, if needed.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Place one tortilla in the skillet; spread the butternut squash mixture on top. Top with the black beans, then sprinkle with the cheese (go ahead; you can add extra cheese if you want). Top with the second tortilla. Cook 3 to 5 minutes on one side until the bottom tortilla is golden brown and crispy. Carefully flip the quesadilla over and cook another 3 to 4 minutes on the other side until the bottom tortilla is golden brown and crispy and the cheese is melted.

Cut the quesadilla into wedges; serve with the crema on the side or spooned on top, along with extra cilantro and/or other toppings like salsa or diced tomatoes, sliced jalapenos and guacamole.
