WOW - this is one of those recipes that is much better than the sum of its parts. Delicious! I was tempted to make scrambled eggs but am glad I didn't because the softer egg really makes these extra good. A truly perfect combo; we struggled to come up with any suggestions - possibly substituting pepper jack cheese, and making sure the beans are layered all between cheese so they don't fall out of the quesadillas when you take a bite. YUM!
