    CraftScout's Note:

    Yes, you could bake these, and they would be lower in fat. But I think you would be missing something. If you want to lower the fat amount, but still have the right taste, use a nonstick skillet and nonstick spray instead of butter or margarine. There's not really any "passive" cooking time, since while one is cooking, you're getting the next one ready, so the Prep time is my estimate for the whole amount of time. Makes 4 main dish servings.

    1. 1
      Mash black beans in a medium bowl slightly. You want some chunks left in it. Mix in salsa, cheese, and salt.
    2. 2
      Heat skillet over medium heat. Spread 1/2 T. butter on one side of 2 tortillas.
    3. 3
      When skillet is hot, lay one tortilla in it, buttered side down. Spoon one quarter of bean mixture onto tortilla and spread evenly to edges. Lay second tortilla on top, butter side up.
    4. 4
      When bottom tortilla is brown and crisp, flip. When second tortilla is brown and crisp, remove from pan and allow to cool before cutting into wedges.
    5. 5
      Repeat for three more quesadillas.

      This is now one of our family favorites. In an effort to lower the fat we use half the cheese. We also cook it on a griddle with cooking spray instead of butter and it still comes out crispy. We also add a half cup to a cup of corn after the beans are mashed for texture and sweetness. Thanks for sharing this one!

      Made for ZWT5! This was a fantastic meal and was so easy to make.It didn't require lots of time in the kitchen chopping and I already had all of the ingredients at home. I put lots of cheese and butter and made it a very feel good meal for winter :) I will SO be making these again.Thank you for the recipe.

      These made a fast and fabulous lunch for me. The recipe is easy to scale down for one person and putting the salsa inside the quesadilla makes for a neat-to-eat meal. I opted for the cooking spray, used nearly-nonfat tortillas and was careful about how cheesy I made it, so it was not a fatty meal. Thanks for posting, Scout!
