Loaded Vegan Quesadillas

  • Author: One Lovely Life
  • Yield: 5-6 1x


  • olive oil
  • 56 (10-inch) flour tortillas – I use Mission Gluten Free tortillas
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 green pepper, diced
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 (4oz) can green chiles (don’t drain)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 (15oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, mashed squash, or mashed sweet potato
  • cilantro (optional)


  1. Heat a small drizzle of olive oil in a medium or large pan over medium heat. Add bell peppers, and onion. Saute until soft and starting to caramelize, around 8-10 minutes.
  2. Stir in green chiles.
  3. Add black beans and sprinkle with chili powder, cumin, and salt and pepper (as desired). Add pumpkin (or squash/sweet potato). Stir to combine.
  4. Spread a scoop of the bean mixture onto half of a tortilla. Fold tortilla in half to cover the filling, and repeat with remaining tortillas.
  5. To cook, heat a pan over medium heat. Add folded “quesadillas” and cook 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden and crispy. Slice and enjoy!
