Vegan White Bean & Chili Quesadillas

1 15 oz can cannellini beans

1 ½ C vegan mozzarella or cheddar (or a mix of both)

1 small can diced green chilis

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp oil

4 whole wheat tortillas

Pinch of salt

Mash the beans with a fork or potato masher until mostly smooth - leaving a few chunks.  Gently stir in the cheese, chilis, cumin and salt

Spread ¼ of the mixture on to ½ of a tortilla and fold tortilla.  Do this for the remaining three tortillas.

In a large skillet, heat the oil and lightly sauté the tortillas until slightly browned on each side.

Cut into triangles.  Serve with a smoky chipotle salsa mixed into a vegan sour cream}
