Beany, Cheesy, Zucchini Quesadillas

Makes 6 Servings

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch dice (1 1/2 to 2 cups)
1 small onion, finely diced (about 3/4 cup)
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
One 15 1/2-ounce can canellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa (we like mild)
1 1/2 cups preshredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
Six 8-inch flour tortillas

Lightly oil or coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the zucchini, onion, cumin, and chili powder and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Stir in the beans, salsa, and 1 cup of the cheese to the skillet and cook until the mixture is heated through and the cheese melts, about 2 minutes.
To assemble the quesadillas, arrange the bean mixture evenly over half of each tortilla. Fold over, press down gently, and place each on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the tortillas.
Bake until the cheese melts and the tortillas become crisp on the outside, about 10 minutes. Cut into quarters and serve.
