    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    1 tsp sunflower oil
    1 red onion, half diced, half thinly sliced
    400g can black beans, drained and rinsed
    Juice of 1 lime
    100g mango (about ½ mango), sliced
    1 small red pepper, deseeded and sliced
    ½ avocado, peeled, stoned and sliced
    25g 30% lighter mature Cheddar cheese, finely grated
    3 seeded tortilla wraps 


    1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Fry the diced onion for 2 minutes until softened, then add the beans and a splash of water, and fry for 2 more minutes. Season, add the lime juice, then take off the heat and lightly crush with a potato masher or the back of a fork.

    2. Prepare all the other ingredients ready to use. Take one tortilla and lay out on a large chopping board. Spread one-third of the bean mixture over half of it. On top of the beans, layer up with one-third of the mango, pepper, avocado, sliced red onion and cheese. Fold over to make a semi-circle. Repeat to make 2 more quesadillas.
