I had to explain to my Mother-in-Law what hummus was because she had never heard of it and was skeptical. However, once she tried a small spoonful of the hummus, she was hooked.
She liked it so much that I had to hide the black bean hummus to have enough available to make the Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadillas. My Mother-in-Law is a tough critic. If she likes it, then you know it is good!
It would be a great idea to make extra Southwest Black Bean Hummus to serve as a dip with vegetables. I like to add a dollop of sour cream and some chopped cilantro.
Once you have the Black Bean Hummus made, then it is only a matter of assembling the ingredients for the Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadillas.
Start by laying a flour tortilla on a flat surface. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the Southwest Black Bean Hummus on the tortilla. You may adjust the amount for your taste. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. Then top with red and green bell peppers and sliced jalapenos if you want a kick. Then top with another tortilla.
The Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadillas are really kind of like a Southwest or Mexican style grilled cheese sandwich because now that the quesadillas are assembled, it is time to grill them on a hot griddle or in a hot skillet.
The Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadillas cook in a hot skillet for only a couple of minutes until turning.
The tortillas will become golden brown and a little crispy and the cheese starts to melt. Be careful not to burn the tortillas. Once the cheese is melted then carefully remove the quesadillas to a plate and slice into triangles. Now you are ready to serve the Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadillas.
Now it is your turn. Be sure to head to Walmart to pick up the BUSH’S® Hummus Made Easy and a can of BUSH’S® Black Beans to make these Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadillas. Trust me. You will thank me for it!
