Black Bean & Cheese Quesadillas
Black Bean and Cheese Quesadillas with salsa and cumin are perfect for a quick and hearty lunch or appetizer!
Will you be watching Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday? or do you just watch for the commercials and food like I do? HAHA
Regardless if you are cheering on the 49ers or the Ravens, you might be scrambling for some Super Bowl Party Food ideas. ~shhhh, but I had to look up who was playing so I could put that in my post 😉
The unofficial American holiday requires not only watching the game on television but also eating hefty snacks. Such an event calls for manly cuisine……dishes designed to be eaten by hand and that will stick to the ribs.
Black Bean and Cheese Quesadillas fit that bill rather nicely! I use the recipe from Bush’s Beans and it’s a dish that gets everyone in my house hustling to the kitchen fast!
These quesadillas are packed with protein and couldn’t be easier to make. They take only minutes to prepare and another few minutes to cook – gotta love that! You can use any type of tortilla, we just usually have flour tortillas on hand.
Simply drain your black beans, I like BUSH’S® Black Beans Seasoned Recipe (I should have drained mine a little better) and add your favorite salsa and a little cumin.

Let’s Make Quesadillas!
Using your fanciest paper plates (or a pan), spread the bean mixture on a tortilla and sprinkle with your favorite cheese (someone ate all of our Colby-Monterey Jack, so I used cheddar)
Heat a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook quesadillas about 2 minutes (until the bottom is toasted brown)
Using a large spatula and your hand, carefully flip quesadilla over and cook the other side 2-3 mins until brown and cheese is melted.
Remove from skillet and cut with a pizza cutter.
Serve with more salsa or sour cream.
That’s it!! Enjoy!
