My vegetarian husband goes crazy over these every time! They are really cheesy, a little bit spicy, and a little bit sweet. Feel free to play around and add chicken or veggies, if you desire. Don't forget the salsa and sour cream!

  • Melt 2 teaspoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the skillet, sprinkle evenly with cheese, then top with some of the bean mixture. Place another tortilla on top, cook until golden, then flip and cook on the other side. Melt more butter as needed, and repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.

These are great! I left out the red pepper flakes because I didn't have any, but added some Frank's Chile and Lime sauce. I also used burrito sized tortillas and baked them in the oven instaead of in a skillet. I sprayed a pan with Pam, put the filling and cheese on half a tortilla & folded it in half (this recipe made 4 for me), sprayed the tops with Pam and baked at 350 for 10 minutes then broiled the tops until browned. Cooking in the oven helps when you want to have them all done at once instead of one at a tme. I served with homemade guacamole, sour cream and salsa. Read More

This was SO yummy. Messy but yummy. Only thing I omitted was the red pepper flake. I knew the jarred salsa I had on hand would be hot enough without adding the flake. This scaled down well for me, making two small-ish quesadillas. Very filling. Read More

Every Wednesday night, my roommate, his girlfriend, and myself take turns cooking dinner before our favorite TV Show LOST! My roommate's girlfriend is the only vegetarian, so cooking vegetarian meals has been something new for my roommate and I. Well, let me tell you, this recipe was a big hit! The quesadillas turned out crisp and delicious! Pretty much followed the recipe to T except I substituted a mexican cheese blend for the montery jack. Garnished with sour cream, salsa, Chalulu hot sauce, and the green tabasco. Fantastic! Will definately make them again! Read More

I thought this was really yummy. I read the reviews and left the brown sugar in the recipe maybe used a tad less than 1 Tbs. I thought it added a nice touch. I added cumin. Instead of using salsa I used fresh chopped tomatoes that I put on top of the warm mixture in the quesadillas along with some chopped green onions. I will definately be making this again. Its a great meatless dish but I may try it with chicken some time down the road. Read More

This is a quick easy dish that my family loves. I have made it twice. The only change is folding over the quesadilla to make it easier to handle. Thank you for this healthy meatless meal. Read More

Loved these! I am not a vegeterian but am trying to not eat meat one day a week. I added chopped jalapenos and a little lime juice and left out the red pepper flakes. I also just used cooking spray instead of the oil. I took the suggestion of baking in the oven for 10 min at 350 and then broiling at the end and that worked well if making multiple quesadillas at one time. Stove top works fine if you are just making one. Read More

You truly don't miss the meat in this recipe. I was somewhat skeptical at first. For the onion I used a red onion and used only a third of it. I used half cheddar and half monterey jack cheese. Next time I'm only going to use about 1/2 T of brown sugar. Per other reviews I baked them in the oven for 10 minutes @ 350 and then broiled them for about a minute to brown the tops. Great Recipe! My husband loved them. Read More

Great! The only change I made was I didn't cook in skillet but did two at a time in a 450 degree oven. I spritzed two tortillas with oil and placed those sides on the outside of the quessadilla so they would brown up and get slightly crispy. about 10 minutes and you don't have to flip over! Read More

These are EXCELLENT and so simple to make! I omitted the olive oil and used Canola Spray instead. I also omitted the butter and used the spray. I added fresh chopped jalapeno and a little chopped cilantro. My husband went nuts over these. I paired them with a Puffy Chile Relleno Casserole and it made a perfect dinner. Read More
