Cook time

  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 packet of Community Co Shredded 3 Blend Cheese
  • 1 packet of Community Co Wholemeal Tortillas
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ½ tbsp lime juice
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp ground black pepper

How to make:

  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Add water in a pot over medium heat. Add spices and stir. Add black beans, then
    bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes, then mash to
    desired consistency. Rest covered, for 5 minutes.
  3. Use a knife to cut out Jack-O-Lantern faces in 4 of the tortillas.
  4. Place the uncut tortillas onto the baking tray. Make sure they don’t overlap.
  5. Get the kids in the kitchen! They can spread some of the bean mix onto the base of
    the uncut tortillas and then sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Place the Jack-O-Lantern faces over the top and bake for 5 minutes.
  7. Serve and enjoy!

Top tip: These quesadillas taste great with a simple guacamole (just mash a ripe avocado and mix with lemon juice).
