Black Bean Quesadillas

This is the perfect recipe for me. Simple, fast and delicious. I don't know anything more delicious and quick as quesadillas. I just don't make them that often cause they don't seem like a "dinner" meal to me, but by adding the black beans it really beefs them up. These are nutritious and filling and the perfect kid you know the little ankle biters'll be happy! Love, love, love these!!

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
5 flour tortillas (use whole wheat for a more nutritious option)
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup pepperjack cheese

In a large bowl mash the black beans. Add salsa. Spread about 1/3 of the mixture onto a tortilla. top with cheese. Place on a hot griddle or skillet. Top with another tortilla. Cook till both sides are golden brown and the cheese is bubbly. Cut and serve with additional salsa and sour cream. Makes 2 whole quesadillas and one half size. (This was perfect for our family because we only have 2 1/2 people to feed...if you have more people in your family, double or even triple the recipe.)
