Quesadillas Recipe

All credit for this one goes to Budgetbytes at http://www.budgetbytes.com/. Heart Black Bean Quesadillas. This should be the Last one of theirs we’re adopting.

So I forgot that Ryan is off for a small trip at the end of the week so in lue of a stew recipe you get Quesadillas! Maybe another Recipe in a little bit.

tsp = teaspoon

Tbsp = Tablespoon

lbs = Pounds

Mince = chop into very small pieces

Diced = You chop the thing into roughly square like shapes

Saute = cook with oil


  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • ½ small red onion – Diced
  • 1 clove garlic – Ryan didn’t like chopped Garlic so this is up to you
  • ¼ bunch fresh cilantro – Chopped (Honestly while fresh is better, if you have dried stuff and you like it, use it)
  • 2 cups shredded cheese – you can buy or grate your own cheese
  • 10 taco-sized [Medium-sized] tortillas – Make sure they’re cooked

Necessary Equipment

  • Large Bowl
  • Cheese Grater
  • Measuring spoons and coops (Duh)
  • Fry Pan/Skillet
  • Strainer


  1. Drain the Can of beans and rinse the beans lightly
  2. Place the Beans and frozen corn in the large bowl
  3. Rinse, de-leaf the Cilantro before chopping
    1. Personally I would also Saute the onions a bit but I’m not ahuge fan of raw onion so
    2. Saute the onions until lightly brown
  4. Mix the cilantro, onions, garlic and cheese with the beans and corn
  5. Fill half a cup of the filling into the Tortilla (eye ball it really)
  6. Cook the Filled Tortilla on Medium heat until it’s brown or the cheese has melted
