Black Bean Quesadillas

July/August 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (363 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. "

This recipe has been added to the once a week healthy dinner! It is delicious! We add some jalepenos too to add a kick! YUM


I made these the other day and thought they were pretty good, but needed a little kick to them; any suggestions?


Great! and SO simple to make! I omitted the avocado (i don't like avocado) but added onion, lettuce & sour cream to top onto the quesadilla.


I added fresh, minced basil, and green chile peppers from the can. Husband loves them, and he wants meat in his quesadillas, as a rule. Good recipe.


Since some other reviewers had trouble with the filling falling out, I pureed my beans with some fresh lime juice (and a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, for kick!), then mixed that with the salsa and spread it on the tortillas, sprinkling the cheese in top. Worked like a charm! I also mashed the avocado with some lime juice and a dollop of sour cream to make more of a dip for the quesadilla wedges. YUM!
