Refried Bean Quesadillas



Refried Bean Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp oil

  • 2 green onions, finely chopped

  • ¼ tsp Kosher salt

  • ¼ tsp cumin

  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  • 1 (15 oz.) cans of pinto beans, drained and rinsed

  • 3 Tbsp water

  • ¾ cups shredded cheese

  • 2 Tbsp cilantro, minced

Quesadilla Ingredients

  • 10 corn tortillas



Refried Bean Directions

  1. Heat oil in a pan on medium high; sauté green onions, salt, and cumin until golden—about 2 minutes. Add garlic powder and sauté until fragrant—30 seconds.

  2. In a bowl, mash beans and 3 Tablespoons water to a coarse paste with a potato masher or fork. Fry the mashed beans in a skillet until the beans are soft and thick—about 5 minutes.

  3. Add more water if beans dry out before reaching the desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Pour bean mixture into a bowl and let it cool for 5-10 minutes. Add shredded cheese and 2 Tablespoons minced cilantro. Mix thoroughly. Wipe pan out with a towel.


  1. Spread a thin layer of the refried beans on one side of a tortilla—about 2 Tablespoons.

  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Brush or spray with a thin coat of oil; heat quesadilla on one side for about 4 minutes. Flip and heat the other side for another 3 minutes. Cut into wedges and garnish.
