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.
