Rice and Bean Quesadillas

I got this off my friend's blog and we loved it.

1 cup cooked brown rice, warm or at room temperature
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 green onion, finely sliced (white and green parts)
1/2 red or green pepper, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
juice of 1 lime
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1-2 cups shredded cheese

Saute the green onion and green pepper in a little bit of olive oil. While sauteing, add the chili powder, ground cumin, garlic salt, and cilantro (use dried if you don't have fresh, that's what we did). Add lime juice, rice, and beans. Mix well until warm and reduce heat to low. Prepare quesadillas in olive oil with cheese and rice and bean mix. Serve and enjoy!
