Quick Quesadillas

A quesadilla, a tortilla folded over shredded ...

If you need a dinner that’s quick and the kids will love, then check out these quick quesadillas.


One can of black beans

One can of re-fried beans (you can leave this out, just add a second can of black beans)

Favorite salsa (I use a homemade organic salsa that is amazing)

One big can of chicken

Large wheat tortillas

Shredded Cheese


Mix both cans of beans, a few spoons of salsa and the can of chicken into a bowl

Place one tortilla in a frying pan on medium to medium-low heat

Scoop some of the bean filling on one half of the tortilla

Sprinkle the cheese of your choice across the top. I found that Kraft has some wonderful creamy, melty cheese blends especially designed for quesadillas. (If you’re on a low-fat eating plan you can easily leave the cheese out or pick a low-fat cheese)

When the cheese starts to melt fold the tortilla in half and cook until you have achieved the desired crispness, flipping once so both sides get crisp

If you love guacamole I have a quick fix! Mash up one or two avocados, add a spoon of salsa and a little squeeze of lime or lemon juice. In less than 5 minutes you have a great fresh side to dip  your quesadillas in.

INSIDER TIP: I made these when there was just three of us to cook for one night. I had a good amount of filling left. My son and I discovered that just warming some filling in a bowl and using chips made a great snack for the next day!
