Bean & Cheese Quesadillas

Bean & Cheese Quesadillas Recipe

By Veegs

🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes (not including time to make 15-Minute Refried Beans and Basic Cashew Cheese Sauce)

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 10 minutes


2 cups 15-Minute Refried Beans

4 flour tortillas (gluten-free if necessary)

Basic Cashew Cheese Sauce

Salsa and/or guacamole


1Spread ½ cup of the beans on one half of a tortilla.

2Drizzle cheese sauce over the beans.

3Gently fold the other side of the tortilla over the beans and cheese. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

4Heat a large frying pan, preferably cast iron, over medium-heat.

5Place one to two (if they’ll both fit) quesadillas in the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy.

6Transfer them to a plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas.

7Serve immediately with salsa and/or guacamole.

8To make these quesadillas come together in a snap, you can prepare the refried beans and/or the cheese sauce in advance. It’s also a great way to use up any leftover refried beans you may have from making Mexican Pizza with 15-Minute Refried Beans. To ensure that this dish is soy-free, remember to use coconut aminos in the refried beans and chickpea miso in the cashew cheese sauce.
