Black Bean Quesadillas

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (358 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.

"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 & Delicious

This is an excellent recipe. Not only did it taste delicious but it was simple to make. I highly recommend it for students also who are looking for a quick healthy meal.

It was quick and simple to make.
Quick, Easy, and Yummy!

I'm a full time student working two jobs, so I have hardly any time to eat, let alone eat healthy. This is such a great option to have because it's really cheap, really easy, and really healthy! I also love that it's so easy to personalize. I added some spices that really made the dish. I will definitely make it again!

Delicious, Healthy, Quick, Cheap
Super awesome quick meal!

As a full time student, dinners have to be fast but healthy. I made this tonight for my family and everyone LOVED it! I left out the salsa because my daughter doesn't eat anything spicy, and I used rice cheese to make this vegan. It was awesome, and my daughter even requested it for her lunchbox tomorrow!

Took less than 20 minutes, my 3 year old loved it, filling, healthy
Very Easy to Prepare

This was a quick and simple meal, and I love black beans. I added a little scallion, cumin and fresh tomato to my mixture. Mashed the beans a little. Not a big fan of avocado, so I didn't purchase any. I didn't miss it. Will definitely make again.

Quick, inexpensive, great taste

This receipe was extremely tasty. My husband even enjoyed it. It didn't take long to make, nor was it expensive.
