Stacked Veggie Quesadilla
- 4 8-inch-diameter flour tortillas
- 1 8-ounce package peeled chopped butternut squash, cut into ½- to ¾-inch cubes
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
- 1 cup chopped white onion
- 1 15- to 16-ounce can black beans, rinsed, drained
- ½ cup salsa, divided
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 cup coarsely grated hot pepper Monterey Jack cheese
- ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- Sour cream
- Additional salsa
- Fresh cilantro sprigs (for garnish)
- Preheat broiler. Put tortillas in single layer on baking sheet. Brush with oil. Broil until toasted, about 3 minutes. Turn; set aside.
- Place squash in microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle water over, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave until just tender, about 3 minutes; drain. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté until beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Add squash; stir 1 minute. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spread out squash in even layer over 1 tortilla. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Add beans, ¼ cup salsa, garlic, and chili powder. Using potato masher, crush until beans are coarsely mashed; season with salt and pepper. Stir in ¼ cup salsa. Spread over second tortilla. Sprinkle cheese over third tortilla. Leave fourth tortilla plain.
- Broil tortillas until cheese melts and vegetables are browned in spots, about 3 minutes, watching to prevent burning. Transfer black bean tortilla to plate; sprinkle ¼ cup chopped cilantro over. Top with cheese tortilla, squash tortilla, then plain tortilla. Cut into 4 wedges. Garnish with sour cream, salsa, and cilantro sprigs.
