Bean and Cheese Quesadilla

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LizAnn

This is a kid pleaser recipe, especially served with ranch dressing for dipping. We often eat these for lunch along with chips and salsa. For a lower fat version, just microwave them instead of frying. They just lack the buttery crispy edges, but my kids still like them.

I keep a jar of jalapeño slices in the fridge always. I lightly chop a few of these and throw on the beans along with a Mexican blend of cheese for extra flavor. You can make with any size tortilla you have on hand and I like to use olive oil and my cast iron skillet.
