Black Bean Quesadillas

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (325 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. "

Simple and delicious

Decided to try this recipe when my fridge was practically empty and didn't feel like going to the grocery store. While I didn't have avocado, I ate these with a side salad and they were so delicious and filling. My husband ate them after rugby practice and loved them - and neither one of us is vegetarian! Didn't even miss the meat. This will be my go to recipe when I want a meal in 10-15 minutes.

Quick, not very many ingredients, tasty

Quick, easy, delicious!

Nothing wrong with vegetarians, besides the whole not eating meat thing. My modifications:

--brown 1/2 lb turkey sausage and a dash of red pepper
--make bean mixture and toast in tortilla as directed
--open quesadilla, add 1 leaf romain lettuce, thinly sliced tomato, 1/4 turkey, mustard, and mayo. Close and enjoy.

This adds the sustenance, kick, and tang the original recipe is just plain lacking. But the beans, salsa and cheese mixture really set it off.

Great base recipe

This was so easy and quick to make and was really delicious. I added a little more cheese and low fat sour cream on top. I also put the avocado in with the beans and cooked it. I can't wait to make it again!!!
