Black Bean and Salsa Quesadillas

Leave a comment

I don’t usually eat lunch but once in a while I want it.  As I was standing in front of my pantry wondering what to have, I hit on it.  I always have canned black beans, salsa, cheese, and tortillas so I put them all together to make easy quesadillas.

It’s very easy to use whatever you have on hand to make quesadillas so make these the way you like best!

Black Bean and Salsa Quesadillas

Black Bean and Salsa Quesadillas

3 tbsps canned black beans, drained and rinsed
3 tbsps salsa ~ I used medium heat salsa so use your favorite
shredded cheddar cheese
2 flour tortillas
softened butter

Mix the black beans and the salsa together in a small bowl. Set aside.

Butter one side of each tortilla. In a cold skillet, place one tortilla, butter side down. On one half of the tortilla in the skillet, spread half of the bean/salsa mixture and top with however much shredded cheese you want. Flip over the unfilled side of the tortilla on top of the filling so it looks like a half moon. Turn heat to medium high and cook until browned on one side then carefully flip and cook on the other side until browned. Carefully slide tortilla onto a plate. Repeat with other tortilla. Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut into pieces.

Serve with sour cream, tomatoes, or your favorite toppings.

Makes 2 quesadillas.
