"Before he tried these quesadillas, my boyfriend wouldn't eat beans. Now, he can't get enough of them! All of my health-conscious friends love this creamy, flavorful dish. The key ingredient is the cumin: It brings everything together."

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic, and saute for 3 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup salsa, cumin, and beans, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes or until thick. Mash the bean mixture slightly with a potato masher. Remove from heat; stir in the cilantro and goat cheese.

Step 2

Spread the bean mixture evenly over 4 tortillas; top each with 1 tortilla, pressing gently.

Step 3

Heat 1/4 teaspoon olive oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 quesadilla, and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Repeat the procedure with the remaining olive oil and quesadillas. Cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges. Serve with fat-free sour cream and 1/2 cup salsa.

I really enjoyed the filling which would make a great dip. As a quesadilla filling it was a little to mushy. I will make it again and dip chips or veggies in it. The filling stores well to be eaten as leftovers.

This was simple, quick, and very satisfying. I recommend a homemade salsa over bottled - it makes all the difference in flavor. Make extra, and use it as a topping - much healthier than sour cream!
