Poblano, mango, and black bean quesadillas … and more fro-yo.

Hey gang!  First of all, thank you all so much for your kind words on Monday’s post regarding selling our house.  I can just feel the love oozing out of my computer screen! Smile

Today I have another “exciting” WIAW to share … followed by a super delicious recipe!

As always, props to our fabulous hostess, Jenn. Winking smile

Breakfast:

waffle

OK, this is obviously not my picture. Winking smile  I rarely remember to bring my camera down to the hotel lobby.  But you get the idea … a Belgian waffle with peanut butter and sugar-free syrup.  Yum!!

Snack:

004-1500

Strawberry-banana Chobani yogurt with Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal mixed in.

Lunch:

002-1500

Huge salad … a mix of baby kale and spinach greens, broccoli, carrots, and red onion.  Topped with Brianna’s Caesar dressing.  This salad dressing is a new addiction. Smile with tongue out

008-1500

English muffin topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, broccoli, onion, green pepper, and banana peppers.  I put it in the toaster oven set to “broil” for just a couple of minutes, until the cheese was nice and melted.  A delicious way to get some extra veggies in. Winking smile

Afternoon treat:

010-1500

Cake batter-flavored frozen yogurt. Red heart

011-1500

In the mix: kiwi, blackberries, cookie dough, brownie, and marshmallow cream.  I loved the fruit, but I actually didn’t love it with the frozen yogurt.  So I ate the fruit first, and then mixed the brownie into the yogurt.  Amazing.

Dinner:

023-1500

A couple of these beauties: Poblano, mango, and black bean quesadillas.  Delicious and super easy.  Recipe below!!

Dessert:

012-1500

I bought this candy bar at Whole Foods last week.  It contains only 5 ingredients, all of which are organic. 

001-1500

And you only need a couple of small pieces to feel satisfied.  I’ve had the candy bar for almost a week, and I’m only halfway through it. 

Yummy day! Smile

Poblano, mango, and black bean quesadillas

(Modified from this recipe)

Makes about 6-7 quesadillas

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 mangoes, peeled and chopped
  • about 2-3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 avocado, peeled and chopped
  • 6-7 whole-wheat tortillas
  • About 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese mix

(Note: next time I would add a little fresh lime juice to the mix)

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, poblano pepper, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Sauté for several minutes, until the onion is softened. Add black beans and cook another minute or until heated through.
  2. Pour the entire mixture into a large bowl. Add chopped mango, avocado, and cilantro. Mix together (Note: at this point, I would also add a little lime juice.)
  3. Place a tortilla onto your baking sheet.  Add some of the mixture (maybe less than a cup) onto the tortilla. Add some shredded cheese. Fold the tortilla in half. Broil in the toaster oven for 2-4 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the top of the tortilla just gets slightly toasted. Repeat with the remaining tortillas. (Note: you can also use a regular oven and broil them all at the same time, if you actually have that luxury. Winking smile)

013-1500014-1500

016-1500021-1500

022-1500018-1500

020-1500

These quesadillas were a HUGE hit.  Brandon and I both loved the hint of sweetness from the mangoes, plus the heat from the poblano.

One note: if you want a little more heat, keep some of the seeds from the poblano. Winking smile

023-1500

And that’s it!  Have a fabulous day, everyone!!

Question for ya …

    whenever I get fro yo I usually just eat it plain :) however if I do choose to put toppings on I will use fruit/nuts :) I never do the gummy bear thing?!? I just don’t get it hahahaha

    • notsodomesticated

      I’m not into gummy bears, either. I would imagine that they would get hard when you put them on ice cream or frozen yogurt, right?? I can’t picture that being good!

  2. Mattie @ Comfy and Confident

    yum! gosh all your meals look so good. I am so impressed you do it all in your hotel room. You are def lucky to have a continental breakfast there, it must make everything so much easier.

    ooh, your quesadillas sound fantastic! + i’ll have to find that chocolate at our local Whole Foods – i’ve never seen it, but it looks + sounds wonderful! my favorite ingredients to put into a quesadilla: chicken, caramelized onions, jalapeños, black beans, + lots of cheese!

      Oooh caramelized onions … yum! :)

  4. Liz @ iheartvegetables

    Haha I was about to ask how you scored such an amazing picture! I’m at a hotel right now, and the lighting everywhere is so bad for picture taking! ugh!

    Those quesadillas look AMAZING!

    • notsodomesticated

      You’re at a hotel, too?? How come?? I feel your pain!

  5. Laurie @Love, Laugh, Laurie

    I had cake batter fro yo yesterday too! But no marshmallow cream for me, that would have been amazing. I’m not a huge fruit person on my ice cream, but I do like ice cream on my fruit desserts :)

  6. Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy

    I had grapes for my morning snack yesterday. I guess that’s kind of boring?

  7. Becca

    Most boring food would be 2 bags of frozen veggies. They are boring but very quick and easy :)
    The quesadillas Sound fantastic! Yum!

  8. Amber with Slim Pickin's Kitchen

    We share a common love…for frozen yogurt! I wish I ate it as much as you do though ;) The breakfast also looks ah.ma.zing. It seems like sometimes staying in a hotel pays off!

    chocolate and coconut?! love it! I just bought some new chocolate bars, one with blueberries and another with espresso beans. Delicious :)
    Kat recently posted..Vegan Coconut PopsiclesMy Profile

    • notsodomesticated

      Ooh I saw one with blueberries at the store, too. It sounded really yummy, but the budget-conscious side of my brain said to just get the 1 bar for now haha!

  11. Elizabeth @ Chocolate Drops and Pearls

    Most boring thing I ate was an egg sandwich for dinner on Monday night.

    That recipe looks great. I usually don’t think to make quesadillas but I’ll have to give this one a try.

  12. Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries

    those quesadillas look awesome!! YUM!
    i like fruit in my fro yo with vanilla or fruity froyo, and i don’t like mixing it with candy bar crumbles or chocolate. i either like a fruity fro yo cup or a chocolate-y fro yo cup… i don’t like them mixed. :)

  13. Theresa

    most boring thing i’ve been eating this week is a TON of spinach..i secretly love it though :)

    Bahahahaha I was just about to compliment you on your fantastic breakfast photography, but it’s not your photo. I love english muffin mini pizzas! Most boring thing I’ve eaten this week? Oatmeal. Always oatmeal. And yogurt.

    • notsodomesticated

      Well you can compliment me on my excellent Google image searching instead! ;)

  16. natalie @ southern fit foodie

    Okay, now I’m starving. Those ‘dillas look delicious – I love the flavor of poblano peppers and mangos!

    I like fruit in my froyo, but, like you did, I typically eat it first and then mix my chocolate toppings into the yogurt.

    I see you FOUR days! YAY!
    natalie @ southern fit foodie recently posted..Lower-Sugar Homemade Strawberry JamMy Profile

  17. Tessa @ Amazing Asset

    When I get froyo and cake batter is available… I ALWAYS get that one (among other flavors of course, but that is a must) :)
    Great recipe again! Thanks for sharing :)

  18. Caitlin @ This Bride's Joyride

    Yum, I love putting cilantro in my quesadillas – it gives them the most fresh yummy taste! (Although my fiance thinks cilantro tastes like soap and ruins quesadillas!)

    I much prefer froyo with almonds and chocolate chips. I like having the chocolate and the crunch. On a really hot summery day though I do love to add strawberries or mango!

    • notsodomesticated

      I’ve heard that some people think cilantro tastes like soap. I can’t imagine! I’m so glad I don’t feel that way!! ;)

  19. kaceyt

    i rarely ever make recipes more than once b/c there are just too many delicious recipes out there to try, but i HAVE made bbq shrimp quesadillas three times! they’re so delicious!

      Oooh those do sound really good!!

  20. Avery @ YoungAspirations

    Whoa. I am so behind on blog reading! Wahh :( I didn’t know that about Whole Foods meats either!! That’s super cool. If I ever decide to start eating chicken again, I’ll definitely remember that. And that salad looks awe-some. I think the dressing totally makes a salad.. I have a condiment obsession for sure.

    Ps — congrats on selling your house! That’s so exciting!!

    Pps — we already started a few of the 500 questions and we are LOVING them! Such great conversation starters. Thanks again!!

      Yay that’s great! I’m so glad that you’re enjoying them!! :)

  22. Cinnamon @ eatpraytri

    ha! I saw that first pic and I was like “daaang”! Look at her all fancy pouring the syrup and taking a pic at the same time!! LOL.
    The most boring thing I have eaten is def the leftover spaghetti pie we had for dinner last night. We are trying to eat everything possible in our fridge/freezer before the move this weekend!

  23. Rachelle Renee

    I looove the look of those quesadillas! I’m going to need to try those out.

    Do you let the Kashi Go Lean sit in the yogurt for a little? I love that cereal, but if I don’t like it sit in almond milk or yogurt for a bit it feels like it’ll break my teeth!
    Rachelle Renee recently posted..Whaaaat I Ate Wednesday!My Profile

    • notsodomesticated

      Haha that’s actually a good idea, Rachelle! No, I usually just dive right in … but you’re right, it’s extremely crunchy cereal! I’m embarrassed about how loud I can be when I eat it! ;)

  24. Lindsay @ In Sweetness and In Health

    Those quesadillas look amazing! And I LOVE cake batter flavored fro-yo. It’s the best :) . The most boring thing I’ve eaten this week? Hmmm…pretty much everything haha. I haven’t been venturing out and making things that are super tasty. I just don’t want to spend the money right now!

  25. Kylie @ immaeatthat

    Ohh I love the idea of adding mangoes to a quesadilla! The most adventurous I’ve gotten with quesadillas is adding pumpkin, which now seems not creative at all:)

    • notsodomesticated

      Pumpkin sounds pretty awesome to me!! :)

  26. Charissa

    You make your daily food look so good in pictures…mmmm, mmm….

    The frozen yogurt is stealing my heart…

  27. Kadee @kadeebugblog

    The most boring thing I’ve eaten all week is a turkey sandwich. I normally like them a lot but I’m so tired of them. Time to move on for a while :)

    I like chicken and avocado in my quesadilla and strawberries/kiwi in my froyo, yo. :p

  32. Carrie @ Lift Eat Repeat

    I like fruit on my Fro-yo, but I only like raspberries or strawberries.

    I recently had some cake batter fro-yo it was really good! My issue with really good flavors is I never want to put hardly any toppings on them because then I only taste the toppings

    These quesadillas look delicious! I’ve been looking for a simple black bean recipe and this intrigued me-thanks!!
