  • 1/2 cup refried beans
  • 4 tortillas or wraps

1/4 cup filling as desired from list below:

  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Sliced olives
  • Chopped red bell peppers
  • Corn kernels
  • Chopped green onions or finely chopped jalapeño pepper

To finish tortillas

  • 1 cup shredded cheese, such as cheddar or pepper jack
  • 2 teaspoons butter


Spread beans over half a tortilla. Sprinkle other fillings as desired on top, then cover with a bit of cheese. Fold in and press edges together to keep filling inside.

Lightly butter a hot skillet or griddle and heat quesadilla through, turning once, until cheese is melted and fillings are hot, 5 to 7 minutes total. Enjoy hot, or allow to cool for a few minutes, cut into wedges and place in a container before refrigerating. These hearty quesadillas are good cold and can be reheated.
