Fiesta Black Bean Quesadillas

Fiesta Black Bean Quesadillas

Time: 30 mins


  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red onions
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno (or to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons diced red bell peppers
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper


  • 1 Make the salsa by combining all the ingredients together. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use (may be made up to 2 days ahead).
  • 2 Heat oven to 200* F.
  • 3 Combine the beans, cilantro, onions, tomatoes, garlic, cumin, adobo, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss to combine.
  • 4 Lay tortillas flat. Place 1/8 of the cheese on one half of each tortilla. Top with 1/4 of the bean mixture, then with 1/8 of the cheese. Fold tortilla in half to cover filling.
  • 5 Heat a large non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Cook one quesadilla at a time, taking care not to spill while cooking or turning (use two spatulas when turning over), until lightly browned on both sides and cheese is melty.
  • 6 Transfer each quesadilla to oven when finished to keep warm while cooking the remaining quesadillas.
  • 7 Cut quesadillas into 4 wedges; serve hot with sour cream and salsa.
