Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Oil– You’ll need a little oil to brush on the pan to make the tortillas crispy. I used avocado oil, but olive oil works too.
  • Tortillas- You’ll need large flour burrito-size tortillas for this recipe.
  • Cheese– I recommend Monterey Jack combined with a bit of mozzarella. This gives you a gooey, cheesy, flavorful filling.
  • Beans– I used canned black beans to add fiber and protein to these quesadillas, but I have additional filling ideas below!
  • Taco seasoning– I used oregano, garlic powder, paprika, and salt to season the beans. But you can use any taco seasoning you like.

The Best Cheese for Quesadillas

Monterey Jack cheese is often considered to be the best cheese for quesadillas because of its mild, slightly sweet flavor and its smooth, creamy texture. When melted, Monterey Jack cheese becomes deliciously melty, creating the perfect quesadilla texture. Additionally, Monterey Jack cheese is easy to shred and does not clump, which creates a perfectly gooey texture.

Quesadilla Filling Ideas

I kept these simple with beans and cheese but feel free to add additional ingredients!

  • Vegetables – Grilled or sautéed vegetables like bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and corn make for a delicious and healthy quesadilla filling.
  • salsa – A spoonful of salsa adds a tangy and spicy flavor to the quesadilla.
  • Avocado – Mashed avocado or sliced avocado adds a creamy texture and a rich flavor to the quesadilla.
  • Refried beans – Refried beans also make a delicious quesadilla filling, and it’s an easy way to add more protein and fiber. Just be sure to buy fat-free or vegetarian refried beans as traditional refried beans are made with lard.
