Black Bean Cheese Quesadillas

Another school year is winding down, with summer vacation, packed with camps and other fun activities, right behind it. During our summers some weeks we find ourselves running hither and there often cramming in lunch (many times an unhealthy one) in the middle of it all.

Easy and healthier options, like this Black Bean Cheese Quesadilla recipe from Bush’s Beans, are always good to have in your back pocket. It’s a quick one too, with a few ingredients you can easily keep stocked in your pantry.

Roasted salsa verde was a nice substitution for the regular tomato salsa.

Play with different beans, spices and cheeses to create your own bean quesadilla. This recipe is made with Bush’s Black Beans, a favorite of ours that we keep a stockpile of, but I think pintos, cannelloni, or kidney beans could work well for this recipe too.

Wishing you a happy and safe summer break!

    I could and probably will eat these ALL summer long! Black beans (my fave) + cheese (another fav) + crispy tortilla! Oh yes!

    Thanks for this recipe. I am always looking for black bean recipes.

    I love, love, love black beans. I never used to eat beans until my doctor told me that I needed to lose weight. I discovered that black beans are really good and they are also extremely healthy. You can really pig out on them and still lose weight!

    I make this all the time and my 3 year old loves it! Instead of cumin I put in some cilantro though.
