Welp, this is it for the season. I've only got one more summer inspired recipe for those holding onto each sun drenched day before the official start of Autumn (just one week left!). One final hurrah for summer: cheesy black bean quesadillas with peach jicama salsa.
This recipe was brought to fruition (no pun intended but 😄) during insanely ripe peach season aka August. I had more peaches than I knew what to do with (so many peach dishes I can't even). Ergo, peach jicama salsa.
That jicama tho. Truly the secret ingredient. You might not think much of it (really not too much flavor), but the texture. SO much crunch while still letting the peach flavors shine.
Also, you might be surprised by the lack of meat in these cheesy black bean quesadillas. After a long day of work, sometimes I just can't find the energy to deal with any form of sauteing, marinating, etc. But there's almost always a can of black beans and a can of fire roasted corn in my pantry! (If you're looking to add a little more sustenance to your quesadilla, check out these 30 minute loaded steak quesadillas).
