Black-Bean and Goat-Cheese Quesadillas

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

These can be made as a side dish, an appetizer, or a light dinner with a salad. To give them a smoky flavor, cook them on an outdoor grill rather than in a grill pan, until the cheese melts and the tortillas are crisp. Recipe from Martha Stewart Living magazine. She uses this as a side dish for Bella Roma Pizza. She also serves Pear and Jicama Salad as a side dish as well.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mash beans in a medium bowl until chunky. Add goat cheese, tomato, corn, scallions, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper, and stir until well combined.
  2. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Spread 1/2 cup bean mixture evenly over 1 tortilla, and top with another tortilla. Repeat with remaining bean mixture and tortillas.
  3. Raise heat to medium-high. Grill quesadillas, 1 or 2 at a time, until grill marks appear and filling is hot, about 2 minutes per side. Cut into wedges, and serve warm.

Very delicious and easy to make. DH commented that this is a definite make again recipe and I agree. I also sprinkled a little grated cheese to each quesadilla and instead of cooking them on the grill baked them in the oven. I covered them with tin-foil to stop them drying out.

These are excellent and easy to make. Perfect for a night when you do not have a lot of time to cook. I used canned Aylmer Accents drained(about 1/2 can) in place of the fresh tomatoes. I also added about 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese to each quesadillas. Thanks for the recipe.
