An out of the box creation in my kitchen the transformation of Mexican Quesadilla with Fresh basil and Indian curry Powder .The recipe has a well balanced mixture of carbs, proteins and veggies.Tip: When you place the mixture between the flour tortillas make sure the mixture is hot as this will render the cheese to melt. Also, do not add lot of salt to the mixture as canned black beans and cheese are sometimes salty. You can try the gluten free version of the same with brown rice tortillas instead of using flour tortillas. Serve hot. —Vinaya
