Reviews for Quick Black Bean Quesadillas
"Used this for a light summer dinner. Served with rice."
"I love this recipe! It's delicious and very easy to make. I leave out the roasted red pepper though because of my personal taste."
"This will become one of my go-to recipes. Small list of ingredients, little prep work, short cooking time but a lot of flavor make this recipe a keeper. I left the red peppers out because of my personal tastes."
"Wonderful fresh flavors. I paired mine with sour cream, fresh guacamole, diced tomatoes and a Peach Margarita!!!"
"My house has many finicky eaters so I omitted, onions and peppers and added corn instead to keep it vegetarian and served with spanish rice and it was superb!!"
"excellent recipe! We omitted the peppers for toddler/preschool age eaters, and added some chicken breast, so it was a one dish meal. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed!"
