 Spinach Quesadillas
 This one is REALLY quick. It amazes me how well this works & I really 
 wonder why everyone fries Quesadillas.
 Combine 1 chopped green pepper, 1 chopped onion, 1/2 bunch chopped 
 Spinach, 1 can rinsed black beans & 1/2 pkg taco seasoning (or your fav 
 Mexican spices). Add a little reserved bean juice if the mixture seems dry.
 Put flour tortillas on a cookie sheet. My cookie sheet can hold 2 burrito 
 or 3 small tortillas... either size works fine. Spread the veggie mixture 
 over the tortillas. Sprinkle w/ cheese if you like.
 Place the cookie sheet under a hot broiler and stand there. Do not wander 
 off :) Once the edges of the tortillas start to brown, pull the cookie 
 sheet out & with a spatula, fold each over in half.
 Put the sheet back under the broiler for a minute until the tortillas 
 start to blister & brown. Beware... if your broiler is like mine... it's 
 about 10 seconds from not-quite-done to burnt black. Pull them back out 
 and flip them all over. Broil the other side. Remove & cut in halves or 
 thirds to form triangles.
 Serve with ff sour cream, salsa, rice if you like. I really like the 
 Quesadillas cause the veggies are hot but crunchy, and they seem more 
 decadent than the burittos, but are really less filling. We have also 
 used red or yellow peppers and added corn to both. yummm.
