Black Bean Quesadillas

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (339 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. "

Easy and kid friendly!

I made these for the first time tonight with just a slight variation. I kept everything the same except that I added some Tyson Grilled and Ready pre-cooked diced chicken (in bags by lunch meat at stores). It added a little more texture to the meal. Will be making this again!

Fast, flavorful,

SO SO Good!

made this and it turned out fantastic! I used fresh guacamole with this and it was so good I almost died.
I made sure to the get the smaller option of a quesadilla bread and didn't fill it up too much so that I was able to successfully fold over and flip without all the insides spilling out.
Tip: the cheese serves as a glue almost to the beans and you want to make sure that you don't use too much filling! it will make it so much harder to fold and flip if you use too much.

Easy, fast, inexpensive, healthy alternative, yummy

This is a Keeper

I followed this recipe as was written (I used the Pepper Jack cheese), except for the avocado. I didn't have any but it was great without it. My husband was initially questioning the lack of meat (he's a meat and potato guy) but really liked the dish and didn't miss the meat. I served it with sour cream and salsa with a side of spanish rice. It was very tasty and filling. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe. I'm always looking for something simple and quick.

This is a keeper

I followed the recipe using the Pepper Jack cheese and they were delicious. I forgot to get the avocado but didn't miss it. I served with sour cream and salsa with a side of spanish rice. My husband was initially questioning the lack of meat (he's a meat and potatoes kind of guy) but really liked the meal and didn't miss the meat at all. This is definitely a keeper. Thank you for the recipe. I'm always looking for something simple and satisfying. This fits the bill.

Very simple to make

Easy and Delicious!

I made these for the first time for my family last night and it was a huge hit! I followed according to recipe with the exception of salsa-we only had canned and it worked just as well. Fresh would probably taste good too but the flavor from the canned version tasted really good mixed with the beans.
The fresh avacado is soooo yummy on top of it!
tip: use the smaller tortillas about 4-5 inch across for easy flipping. Also, make sure you don't use too much filling. It makes it hard to flip and it gets really messy.

easy, fun, tasty
