Today I have some quick and easy grilled black bean and cheese quesadillas for you. They have a filling of cheese and black beans, which are my favorite bean to use. Not only do I love the taste of them but they tend to be on the higher end for protein as far as beans go with 8 g of protein.
I cooked these on the grill but you can always cook them in a skillet if you prefer. You can be serve them as your main dish or cut into smaller wedges and served as an appetizer. Either way these grilled black bean and cheese quesadillas are delicious. You will see smiles from your family and guests.
Start by taking a can of your black beans and mash with a potato masher until beans are well mashed. Add in another can of beans along with the salsa and cumin to the mashed beans. Stir until well combined. Divide the bean mixture between 5 of the tortillas. Spread evenly over the tortillas.
Sprinkle shredded cheese over the beans on each tortilla. Top with remaining tortillas and place on the grill. Cook about 2 minutes per side until crisp and golden. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.
