Black Bean Quesadillas

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (342 votes)

In a hurry? These satisfying quesadillas take just 15 minutes to make. We like them with black beans, but pinto beans work well too. If you like a little heat, be sure to use pepper Jack cheese in the filling. Serve with: A little sour cream and a mixed green salad.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This recipe was wonderful as-is. The second time I made it, I fork-mashed the avocado and added lime juice. It was even better!! Quick and easy too. "

Fast and Delcious

If you like Mexican food, this is tasty AND healthy. These were so easy to prepare. I stock up on the ingredients to make this recipe now, so on a night that i have to work late or am just to tired, I make these crowd pleasers. I love avocado, but it's hard to keep it "on hand" and available for whenever, you know? So I purchased 100 Calorie packs of Wholly Guacamole. I put them in the freezer and then when I make this, I just take out a pack or two and I put it in a cup of water and it thaws quickly. This way I can keep ingredients on hand for whenever I want to make this.

Fast, Easy, DELICIOUS

Awful!!!!!

This was absolutely AWFUL!!!!!! I followed the recipe to a tee, and it turned out horribly. The filling was so blobby that you couldn't even eat a bite of the quesadilla without it falling out all over you. Will never make an Eating Well recipe again!!!!!!! This was not even edible

Delicious!

I made these on my 30-minute dinner break and my husband LOVED them! I ended up adding both diced onions and corn into ours, which I thought really completed the Mexican cuisine. You can make them as spicy as you'd like - we used hot salsa and loved every bite!

Quick, easy, delicious and healthy...what more can you ask for?

Did not even miss the meat

I used habanero cheese instead, but no avocado. This was delicious. I did not even miss the meat.

So SOOO Good!!

This dish is very quick and easy to make! This week is midterms for me (college kid) and it's a quick enough meal for me to squeeze into lots of studying time. I've been trying to eat healthy but also on a budget, and I'm also a huge mexican food person so this was perfect! I didn't make any changes to the recipe, and it was great as is but next time I want to try adding some cumin to get a lil more mexican flavor. Will definitely make this again.

Easy, Healthy, Very quick, Great Flavor
