Rice And Beans Quesarito

This Rice and Beans Quesarito is so incredibly satisfying, no one would ever guess it’s entirely vegan, gluten free. Easy to make at home, perfect family food.

It’s a simple thing when you crave for quesadillas, and you have a soft spot for burritos as well. So why not combine both? Yup, it’s real and here: the best from a quesadilla and burrito combined to a quesarito. Fair warning: once you tried it, you can’t stop eating this.

HOW TO MAKE RICE AND BEANS

It couldn’t get any easier than this. You precook the rice according the package directions. For the beans you just use the black beans, which is so easy:

Simply drain your can of black beans, heat oil in a small skillet. Add garlic and beans, fry until everything is lightly browned. Now mix beans and rice together, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add optional cumin and chili powder, if you like, and mix.

HOW TO MAKE VEGAN CHEESE SAUCE

This 3 Ingredient Vegan Cheese Sauce is always great. You wouldn’t believe how versatile and easy you can make this: simple combine cashews, vegetable broth, and tahini in a blender. Then process until everything is smooth and creamy.

HOW TO MAKE RICE AND BEANS QUESARITO

For each quesarito you will need two tortillas, so 8 in total for 4 servings. You will also need a large skillet to prepare them.

Heat a non-stick skillet large enough for the tortillas on medium heat. Place one tortilla into it, sprinkle vegan cheese on top and cover with a second tortilla. Press them carefully, and heat for 2 minutes. Flip them around in the pan and cook for 2 minutes more. Take the quesadila out of the pan and let cool down a bit so you can handle it. Give about 4 Tbs of the rice and bean mixture, sprinkle some vegan cheese sauce top.

Add some of the optional cherry tomatoes and salsa, if you like. Repeat these with the other tortillas until you get 4 servings. This makes such an amazing and totally mouthwatering dinner, lunch, meal prep and work lunch idea. I would guess it’s even suitable for potlucks, get togethers, and date night.

HOW TO MAKE SALSA

If you are looking for a homemade salsa, simply combine some chopped tomatoes, minced garlic, finely chopped onions and a jalapeño or chili for heat. Mix, season with salt and pepper.

You can add a bit lemon juice if you want. It’s really easy to make and basic but trust me, it’s so good and delicious.
