Lightning Fast Black Bean Quesadillas

Lightning Fast Black Bean Quesadillas

I love this recipe because it's quick and requires very little concentration. Sometimes at the end of a long day, the last thing I want to do is follow a new recipe. This lightning fast back up plan saves the day!
This recipe is flexible. You can toss in the ingredients without measuring. You can use any type of tortilla, cheese, and salsa.

Lightning Fast Black Bean Quesadillas
makes 4-5 quesadillas

8-10 (8inch) Flour Tortillas (we like wheat)
2 (15oz) cans Black Beans, rinsed and drained
4 tsp. Chili Powder
Chunky Salsa
Shredded Cheese
Sour Cream
Lime Wedges (optional)

Mix beans, chili powder, and a couple heaping spoons of salsa in a small pot. Heat on med. low temp.

In frying pan over med heat, melt a little butter. Place a tortilla in pan. Sprinkle a layer of cheese, spread a few scoops of black bean mixture, add a second sprinkle of cheese. Top with another tortilla. Heat until cheese starts to melt. Flatten the quesadilla with spatula before flipping. Flip quesadilla over and heat until golden brown.

Remove from pan and place on cutting board. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 6 wedges. 

After you have cooked all your quesadillas, serve with sour cream and salsa. Add a few lime wedges for garnish.

I make these at least once a week. My son does not like black beans, so I make a plain cheese quesadilla for him.

Easy, Delicious, and everyone is happy!
Happy Cooking!
