June kicks of the annual Dairy Month celebration. And, as the wife of a dairy farmer, I can proudly say that we believe integrating dairy products into your diet does more than build strong bones. By incorporating the 3-a-day plan, you can meet calcium and vitamin D needs.
At our house, not only do we drink a lot of milk - sometimes using a gallon or more a day - but we eat our fair share of cheese.
One of our favorites, featuring cheese, is black bean and cheese quesadillas. Try it for a spicy snack or make several and serve as a main dish.
Black Bean and Cheese Quesadillas
- 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/3 cup chunky salsa
- 1 T. chopped green onion
- 1 T. chopped cilantro
- 1 1/2 shredded Pepper Jack cheese
- 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
- 8 tortillas
- 1 T. butter OR butter-flavored cooking spray
- 1 t. cumin
Mash beans. Combine with salsa, onion, cilantro, cheese, and cumin. Divide mixture on four tortillas, spreading close to the edge. Top with a tortilla.
Melt butter or spray cooking spray into skillet. Over medium low to medium heat, cook until lightly browned, approximately 2 - 3 minutes per side. Cut into wedges before serving.
