Poblano, Mango, and Black Bean Quesadillas

I'm a sucker for mango and avocado. These are super yummy and seriously easy! I bought and ripened whole mangos and avocados, but if you're in a super hurry, or just lazy, you can do canned and pre-sliced items like the recipe calls for. For extra fanciness, you can top them with sour cream & salsa.

Yield: 4 quesadillas
Time: 15 min

1 t olive oil
1 1/2 c presliced onion
1/2 t dried oregano
1/4 t salt
1/8 t black pepper
1 poblano chile, seeded and chopped (I used a jalapeno)
1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 c jarred sliced peeled mango
1/3 c cubed peeled avocado
4-8" flour tortillas
Cooking spray
1/2 c (2oz) shredded cheddar cheese

1. Preheat broiler

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, oregano, salt, pepper, and poblano, and sauté 5 min or until onion is tender. Add beans; cook 1 min or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat; stir in mango and avocado.

3. Place tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Arrange about 1/4 c bean mixture on half of each tortilla, leaving a 1/2" border. Sprinkle 2T cheese over bean mixture, and fold tortilla in half. Lightly coat tortillas with cooking spray. Broil 3 min or until cheddar cheese melts.
