  • A pinch of black ground pepper

Vegan sour cream

  • 1 cup of raw cashews
  • 2 tbsp of apple cyder vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 a lemon


  • Chop all the veggies that you need
  • Get your can of beans and corn, and drain the water out of them and rinse the corn and beans.
  • Once you get all your veggies chopped. heat some of your preferred cooking oil in a pan under medium heat, after the oil gets hot Sautee the onions, bell pepper, tomatoes, and garlic for 2 minutes until the onions are transparent.
  • Next, when the onion is ready toss the corn, cilantro, and rest of the powder spices, bouillon, and stir the mixture until hot.
  • Following that toss the can of beans and stir it until it gets hot, but don't heat them too much so the beans don't get smushy.
  • Now that you have your corn and bean mix let's do the quesadillas!
  • Put one tortilla in a cooking pan and place the vegan cheese on top, turn your stove on and put it in medium heat, and heat it until you see a light brown color on the side that is being heated.
  • Begin to place the corn and bean mixture on top of the cheese, and place the other tortilla on top, and start pressing the quesadilla down with a spatula so when you flip it the stuffing doesn't fall from the quesadilla.
  • Later when the tortilla gets lightly brown in the bottom flip it and wait for the other side to get lightly brown too.As soon as your tortilla gets brown in the bottom consider yourself done with your quesadilla!

Vegan sour cream

  • Start doing the vegan sour cream, bring a pot of hot water to a boil and toss it over the raw cashews in an airtight container, and leave them soaking for 20-30min.
  • After that time has passed, drain the cashews and put them in the blender with the rest of the ingredients of the vegan sour cream. Last, blend all the ingredients together and you are all set!

Simple guac

  • Grab the avocado, and start crushing it with a fork.
  • Once the avocado is mashed, throw the rest of the ingredients of the guac in whatever order you prefer.


-You can replace the black beans with chickpeas or another legume.
-Please be sure to put set the heat of your stove to medium so you don't burn them, and after the top tortilla is on top press them down with your spatula so the filling stays in the tortilla.
-Use any plant-based cheese that you want, my favorite brand of cheddar cheese is Follow your heart shredded cheddar cheese, it is the cheddar cheese that is more similar to the real cheddar cheese, but is not the same so don't put your hopes up!
