Quick Bean Quesadillas

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kitchen Kozy

This is a quick recipe that uses items you might already have in the house-- always a plus. Use whatever shredded cheese you like -- it is good with a "Mexican blend" or just about anything.

This is a really good recipe with a little modification. My changes: used nutritional yeast in place of the cheddar cheese, and added: minced onion, minced garlic, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper. Thank you for this recipe, it's something that comes together really quickly and is satisfying.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the refried beans and the Rotel, and stir well.
  2. Over low heat, place a tortilla in a large pan. Cover half of it with shredded cheese. Add 1/6 of the bean mixture, and top with more cheese.
  3. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the top.
  4. When the cheese on the bottom is melted, carefully flip over. Use 2 spatulas to help you do this without spilling.
  5. When the second side is melted and the insides are warm, serve immediately, or place in a 200 degree oven to keep warm until the rest of the quesadillas are ready.
  6. Serve with your favorite salsa, and if desired sour cream. Enjoy!
