Can you have Mexican food night on the DASH Diet? You sure can! The beans in this quesadilla are a great source of filling lean protein and dietary fiber. Corn tortillas are also a great fiber-full whole grain choice. The cilantro yogurt dip adds more flavor, protein, and calcium without adding excess calories. This meal is a great way to follow the DASH diet guidelines.


  • 1 cup beans, black or pinto
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • ½ bell pepper, finely chopped
  • ½ cup corn kernels
  • 1 cup low-fat shredded cheese
  • 6 soft corn tortillas
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • ½ jalapeno pepper, finely minced (optional)
