mmm! I big big quesadillia fan and this did not dissapoint. I like the cream cheese - it makes it extra creamy. I used refired black beans to solve the falling apart problem that other reviewers had. Made for Zaar Cookbook tag.

Yummy! I used refried black beans as I'd just opened some the day before I found this recipe. For the onions, I snipped up part of a green onion over the beans. Instead of brushing with melted butter, I put some butter in the skillet and once it was melted, dipped the quesadilla in the butter on one side, then flipped over to begin cooking - worked perfectly! This was very tasty and will be made again. Thanks for sharing!

I loved this! I used refried black beans because that's what I had but otherwise followed the recipe. Never thought to add cream cheese. It adds a nice "coolness" and goes well with a hot salsa. Thanks!
