A delightful change from the normal quesadilla. I'm not a big fan of red or kidney beans so I used pintos. These quesadillas are packed full of flavor. To make things easy I warmed one side of the tortilla flipped it over and spread the cheese over the entire tortilla. Then I placed the filling on only half of the tortilla and folded over the other half on top. No flipping of a clumsy quesadilla. Read More

Not that good. The kidney beans dried out severely both the beans and rice soaked up most of the BBQ and still it was kind of flavorless. Too much rice and I'd skip the beans if I ever tried this again but probably won't. Read More

The best quesadilla i have EVER had my whole family was in LOVE with it!!!!!! Definitely making again! I added about two or three ounces more of bbq sauce to the bean chicken and bbq sauce pan and it was backed full of delicious flavor!! the only thing i would add is you can make the tortillas a little crispy before you put in the cheese or filling!

I wasn't sure I would like BBQ sauce in quesadillas. However it was actually quite tasty. My family loved it and asked me to make it again. That is quite a compliment since my family is very picky. My tip for this recipe is to use a pizza cutter to cut the quesadillas. Read More

What an excellent idea! This went over so well with the kids. I had to use corn tortillas to keep it gluten free. I loved the rice flavor and bbq together. This is really a nice treat. Read More

These were great. The taste can vary just by changing your barbeque sauce. I used a sweet one this time but will be trying more of a smoky one next time. I loved the rice in this and so did my family. Read More
