Chipotle Black Bean Breakfast Quesadilla

Quesadilla for breakfast? Count us in.

If you didn’t already know, we are a small husband and wife owned company and we recently had a baby (3 months ago to be exact). With a new baby, we have zero time for anything, including recipe development. That is where our awesome third-party recipe developer comes in. She created this chipotle breakfast quesadilla and we are stoked to feature it on our site. We couldn’t be happier with her creative work and are excited to try someone else’s good ideas in the form a tasty meal.
