Make the quesadillas: Clean out the pan, then heat one tortilla over medium heat. Sprinkle one half of the tortilla with cheese, then top with the zucchini and bean mixture. Sprinkle with more cheese. Carefully fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling. Cook over medium heat until the tortilla is crispy and cheese has melted, about 3 minutes per side. (Repeat with the other quesadilla if you’re serving 4 People.)


Make the romaine salad: In a medium bowl, toss the romaine lettuce, lime juice, a drizzle of oil and season with salt and pepper


Finish and serve: Cut the quesadillas into wedges. Serve with the lime sour cream and romaine salad to the side. Enjoy!
