Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: Casual
Serves: 6
  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • ½ cup cream cheese at room temperature
  • ½ can tinned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • leftover chicken, pork, beef or you can cook 6 strips bacon until crisp (crumble)
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 1 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 cups grated cheese { I used the pre-grated Mexican mix of Cheddar, Colby and Montery Jack}
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salsa, guacamole and sour cream
  1. Lay out tortillas on a work surface. Spread cream cheese evenly over all 4 tortillas.
  2. Spoon black beans over 2 tortillas then layer meat over beans. Sprinkle meat with green onions, tomato and coriander. Divided grated cheeses evenly between the two.
  3. Sandwich tortillas together and press gently.
  4. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and gently place in quesadilla. Cook until tortilla is crisp and golden, about 4 minutes, then gently flip and cook until crisp, another 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Remove and let rest for 3 minutes before slicing. Repeat with remaining quesadilla.
  6. Slice each quesadilla into 6 and serve with salsa, quacamole and sour cream.


I hope you enjoy this simple, quick and delicious meal!
