Black Bean and Butternut Squash Quesadillas

Just a quick post for a quick meal! I wanted to share with you this no brainer meal. I fell in love with this combination a couple years ago. Usually its sweet potatoes and black beans but I substituted butternut squash. It was delicious. The above picture is right before I put the top on. It's almost not a recipe because I am sure you all do this kind of thing all the time. What I really wanted to share is the combination of flavors.

I promise tomorrow I will have something sweet for you.
