When I get home late from work as an operating room nurse, I often rely on this handy recipe. Topped with salsa and sour cream, the crisp wedges are always a hit. When I have extra time, I add chopped onion, black olives and green chiles to the beans. —Jane Epping, Iowa City, Iowa


  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1-2/3 cups salsa, divided
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2/3 cup sour cream


  1. In a large bowl, mash beans; add 1 cup salsa. Place five tortillas on ungreased baking sheets; spread with bean mixture. Sprinkle with cheese; top with the remaining tortillas.
  2. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until crisp and heated through. Cut each quesadilla into six wedges. Serve with sour cream and remaining salsa.
