Bacon Chard Quesadillas
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Whole-wheat tortillas are filled with smoky bacon, earthy chard and zesty Monterey Jack cheese in this quick, healthy quesadilla recipe that you can cook all in one skillet.”
4 slices center-cut bacon, chopped
1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced (about ¾ cup)
4 cups chopped chard leaves (from 1 bunch)
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
8 6-inch whole-wheat tortillas
1 cup shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add chard and pepper; cook, stirring, until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add beans and coarsely mash; stir to combine. Remove from heat.
2Place tortillas on a work surface. Spread a generous ¼ cup filling and 2 tablespoons cheese on half of each tortilla. Fold tortillas in half, pressing gently to flatten.
3Wipe out the pan and return to medium heat. Add 4 quesadillas and cook, turning once, until golden on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes total. Transfer to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook the remaining quesadillas.
