Bean & Cheese Quesadillas

My son doesn't eat meat, so I created this recipe as a way for me to cook one meal for the family instead of two. It's so easy, my toddler grandson helps me make it! —Tina McMullen, Salina, Kansas

    It would be faster and even better to just heat beans, cheese, etc. and roll the mixture into a warmed tortilla. You'd have a burrito without messing with the grill.
