One-Pan Chicken & Black Bean Quesadillas
with Lemon Crema
When it comes to quesadillas, we think there’s an endless number of protein, cheese, and veg combos you can make for a delicious and unique meal. This one is no exception: Our chefs pulled together these veg-forward ’dillas with protein-packed black beans, sautéed green pepper, and melty cheese. They’re topped with lemon crema and hot sauce for even more oomph. The best part? This all comes together in under 20 minutes.

• Wash and dry produce. • Quarter lemon. Core, deseed, and dice green pepper. Drain and rinse beans. • In a small bowl, combine sour cream with a big squeeze of lemon juice to taste. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken or beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a plate. Wipe out pan.
• Melt 1 TBSP butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add green pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3-4 minutes. • Add beans and Tex-Mex paste; season with salt and pepper.

Use pan used for chicken or beef here.
• Place tortillas on a clean work surface; evenly top one half of each tortilla with Mexican cheese blend. Top with filling, then sprinkle with Monterey Jack. Fold tortillas in half to create quesadillas.
Add as much chicken or beef as you like along with filling.
• Melt 1 TBSP butter in pan used for filling over medium-high heat. (For 4 servings, you may need to work in batches, using 1 TBSP butter for each batch.) Add quesadillas; cook until tortillas are golden brown and cheese melts, 2-4 minutes per side. • Cut quesadillas into thirds and divide between plates. Drizzle with lemon crema and hot sauce to taste. Serve.
