If i plan to make some Mexican foods at home i cant think more than soaking black beans to cook with. Black beans makes excellent dishes and many Mexican dishes have this beans. If i plan Quesadillas, how can i keep myself away from black beans, obviously my today's post is completely from Mexican cuisine. Potato and black beans combination, works awesome as filling for making some super satisfying quesadillas. Quesadillas have been adapted to many different styles. In many countries like United States, many restaurants serve them as appetiziers. However many variations do exists and now many vegetables like zucchini, spinach or else tofu is also added for filling. Even dessert quesadillas do exists with chocolate, caramel, butterscotch with different fruits in it.
