  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 ripe avocados, mashed
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a mix)
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or butter (for cooking)
  • Optional: sour cream, salsa, or hot sauce for serving


  1. In a bowl, mix the mashed avocados, black beans, red onion, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir in the cilantro if using.
  2. Lay out the flour tortillas on a flat surface. Spread the avocado and black bean mixture over half of each tortilla. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the mixture.
  3. Fold the tortillas in half over the filling to create a half-moon shape.
  4. Heat a teaspoon of olive oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place one or two quesadillas in the skillet (depending on size) and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and the cheese has melted.
  5. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas, adding more oil or butter to the skillet as needed.
  6. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve with sour cream, salsa, or hot sauce if desired.
