'When I get home late from work as an operating room nurse, I often rely on this handy recipe,' says Jane Epping of Iowa City, Iowa. 'Topped with salsa and sour cream, the crisp wedges are always a hit. when I have extra time, I add chopped onion, black olives and green chilies to the beans.'

Very good. I added taco seasoning because I found the bean mixture a little bland. Or maybe the salsa I used was just bland. Or maybe I'm just bland. Who knows. Read More

Nice and easy! I've been making quesadillas for years and it never occurred to me to bake them (slow learner!). I threw the beans and salsa in the food processor and added some seasoning to them. I found that baking the quesadillas at 400 for 15 minutes gave them the crispiness I was looking for. Thanks! Read More

These were great! I halved the recipe (which I shouldn't have). If you warm the beans a bit, they are very easy to mash. I added the salsa to taste, plus added chili powder. To make these crispier, bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. They were a hit with everyone in the family. Read More

Very good and EXTREMELY easy and FAST to put together! I didn't mash the beans (prefer them whole), added the salsa (medium-hot) to them and also added half a packet of Sazon Goya for a hit of flavour. Followed other's advise about baking at 400F to crisp them up. Fabulous! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

added cumin and chili powder to the beans, used a frozen onion/bell pepper blend, finished it off with lime juice, and popped it in the toaster oven for 10 minutes at 350. serve with salsa. the filling makes great leftovers for a quick and easy meal throughout the week. great vegetarian alternative.

These were pretty good. I used refried black beans instead of mashing up canned ones and eye-balled everything instead of measuring. I also added chopped tomato and sprinkled on a few broken up tortilla chips. My only complaint is that the tortillas stayed rather soft. Good snack/appetizer. Read More

Easy, cheap, and fast! I used spinach & roasted garlic tortillas, and added taco seasoning to the black beans and salsa, as another reviewer suggested. I also used low-fat sour cream and cheese. Very satisfying! Thanks for the recipe! This is definitely a keeper. Read More
