Black bean and cheese quesadilla with mango-tequila pico de gallo
Makes 2 servings: 4 wedges each I was inspired at a recent National Mango Board event. So instead of just providing you with a “tasteover”, I’m providing you with a “mangover”! I developed this recipe with Cinco de Mayo in mind. But please enjoy it anytime you want.

It tastes like eggs, it scrambles like eggs and looks exactly like eggs, but it’s magic ingredient? The 4,400 year old legume called mung bean. It’s a delicious, protein-packed, non-GMO, cholesterol-free product that cooks and tastes like a chicken egg. You simply pour it out into a non-stick skillet and cook it like you would regular scrambled eggs. It’s super simple. The color comes from carrot extract and turmeric. The texture is literally identical—it’s wild (watch this video to learn more!). I love watching the people’s reactions. I decided to throw a delicious, low-key …
