"The flavor and texture of mango goes well with black beans and Cheddar cheese in this easy main dish. The recipe uses vegetarian chicken substitute, but real chicken would work just as well." — MOTTSBELA

We loved this recipe, I let my 15 year old select our menu for the week and this was one of his chooses. He loved it so much, he has been raving about it to his friends
The smushed black beans didn't taste that great...definitely needs some salt, and still overpowered the rest of the quesadillas.
I really enjoyed this. I did make a fair few changes though, mostly because I didn't have all the ingredients. I used real chicken, for one. I didn't have black beans, so used half a can of 'mixed beans'. Didn't have arugula, but added fresh cilantro instead. Also added corn kernals and cumin (because I like it). Only down side is that some of them were a little messy to move without the filling falling out. But good recipe. Loved the mango in it for something different!
The flavor was really good, and would have been even better if we had a riper mango. I didn't add the cayenne or the chili pepper because I can't handle the heat lol. We used pinto beans instead of black beans as well.
This was a great recipie I used homemade flour tortillas and piled it on big it made a great meal for the family and helped me to use up the extra mangos I had. The black beans added bulk and protien that helps with my semi vegatarian diet. For the the end product I put the quesadillas in a low temp ovenon a pizza pan instead of the skillet.
This was so super easy to make, and my boyfriend, who is hard to please, raved about it and gave me an A+! Make it, you won't regret it! I served it with salsa and tortilla chips, along with cilantro and sour cream. Yum yum yum!
