Black Bean and Chicken Quesadillas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Melissa_8201

This is a recipe that my mom and I came up with. My hubby loves it and requests it often. For a quick version, try buying a pre-cooked box of seasoned fajita chicken instead of cooking your own. You can also buy black bean dip in a pinch.

Very yummy! I've been looking for a decent quesadilla recipe for quite awhile! I had some problems trying to "blend" the beans (made a little mess!)-next time I think I'll just mash them since they're quite soft already. I used whole wheat tortillas, low sodium beans & low sodium taco seas. I cooked them on med/high but next time will cook on med, as they browned quite quickly! I used canola oil cooking spray, too. Served with just plain sour cream. Next time I might try fat free refried beans for some variety. A keeper!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute chicken and onion over med-high heat until chicken is no longer pink and onions are transparent.
  2. In food processor or blender, combine black beans, salsa, and taco seasoning and blend until creamy.
  3. Distribute beans evenly between 5 tortillas and spread to about 1/4 inch of the edge.
  4. Distribute cooked chicken and onion over beans, and sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Top with the other tortillas and cook quesadillas over med-high heat until golden brown, flipping once.
  6. You can use vegetable oil or cooking spray when cooking quesadillas.
  7. While cooking quesadillas, mix sour cream with chili powder and taco seasoning to taste.
  8. This makes a killer sour cream dip for the quesadillas.
