"Very easy - my daughter could make it. But we all agreed that it was too bland. Next time I will add salsa. We put it in the oven for 10 minutes, and it was too crisp. Next time we will watch it more carefully."

"I love quesadillas and black beans! These are so good and quick and easy to prepare. If you want them a little more hearty, add some rotisserie chicken to them."

"Love this dish! Instead of spinach, I use cilantro. I use this in quesadillas and as a dip for tortilla chips."
