Instructions
Salsa Fresca
  1. Toss all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Quesadillas
  1. In a small bowl, mash together beans and minced chipotle.
  2. In a dry skillet over medium heat, warm a tortilla for about 45 seconds to 1 minute on each side. The tortilla should begin to puff up slightly. Remove tortilla from pan, and fold in half to create a crease. Spread 1/4 of the bean mixture on half the tortilla and top with a 1/2 cup of spinach, 1/4 cup cheese and 1/4 of the avocado slices. Press the top half of the tortilla down and set aside. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  3. Once all tortillas are filled, brush one side of quesadillas with canola oil. In the same pan still over medium heat, place two of the quesadillas oil side down. Once browned and crispy (this will not take long!), brush the second side of the quesadillas with oil and flip. Remove when brown and crispy on both sides. Repeat with remaining quesadillas.
  4. Slice each tortilla into thirds, and top with salsa fresca for serving.
Rice
  1. Fluff hot cooked rice, and stir in lime juice, cilantro and oil.
