A dash of freshly grated black pepper

To assemble, cook, and serve the vegan quesadillas:
Heat the olive oil in a large pan, on medium-heat.
Get the spice mix ready by adding all of the spices to a small bowl.
Once the oil is hot, add the bell pepper, zucchini, and red onion.
Cook the vegetables over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until nicely browned and softened, about 4-5 minutes.
Add the spices and cook for about 1 minute until fragrant.
Add ½ cup of Ki Gourmet La Doña and toss through until the vegetables are well coated, add more as desired, cook for 1-2 min
Remove from the heat, cover to keep warm and set aside.
Make your Guac Mix
Fill your vegan quesadillas. Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium heat.
Take a tortilla and lay it flat in a non-stick pan with a tsp of veg oil, medium heat
Onto one half of it, spread about one fifth of the bayo beans, prepared vegetables, and chopped fresh coriander.
Place another tortilla on top of the fillings and warm it for 10-15 secs. (
NOTE: The tortilla needs to be warm before you do to avoid breaking it) Cook until lightly browned and crisped, then flip over and repeat on the other side.
Post Cooking Tip: Please put the unused tortillas in a Ziplock bag and make sure to draw out as much air as possible or a plastic container, preferably folded in a small tea towel. They should last in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for a couple weeks.
