  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 1/2 cup refried beans
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional: Sour cream and additional salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Whisk together first 3 ingredients. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Add egg mixture; cook and stir until eggs are thickened and no liquid egg remains. Remove from heat.
  2. Place 2 tortillas on a baking sheet. Spread with beans; top with eggs, salsa, cheese and remaining tortillas. Melt remaining 2 tsp. butter; brush over tops.
  3. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes. If desired, serve with sour cream and additional salsa.
Health Tip: Butter adds richness to these quesadillas, but it’s not essential. Cook the eggs in a few spritzes of cooking spray and don’t butter the tortillas. You’ll decrease the fat by about one-third.
Test Kitchen tips
  • Brushing the tortillas with butter isn’t essential, but you’ll love the butter flavor.
  • Baking quesadillas in the oven instead of on the stovetop makes it easy to make more than one at a time and, since they don’t need to be flipped, keeps the filling from falling out.
