Crispy black bean oven quesadillas are insanely tasty and can be on the table in 20 minutes. And this vegetarian meal is easily customized.


  • 2 14.5-ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup tomato salsa
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • Cooking oil spray

Suggested Toppings:

  • Sour cream
  • Sliced jalapenos
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Extra salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  2. Place the black beans in a large mixing bowl. Using a fork, mash about 1/4 of the beans. Add salsa and cheese, and stir to combine.
  3. Place flour tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking oil spray. Spread the bean mixture on one half of each tortilla. Fold over the other half of the tortilla to make a half moon shape. Spray the top of each quesadilla lightly with cooking oil spray.
  4. Bake for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and beans are heated through. Remove from oven. Let cool on the pan for about 2 minutes before cutting into wedges.
  5. Serve warm with suggested toppings.
