Ingredients

  • 1 (16-ounce) can BUSH'S Black Beans
  • 1 (6-ounce) package BUSH's HUMMUS MADE EASY Southwest Black Bean
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 red sweet pepper sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper sliced
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and sliced (leave seeds in for more heat)
  • Optional: sour cream and cilantro to garnish

Instructions

  • To make the Southwest Black Bean Hummus, combine the BUSH'S Black Beans with the BUSH'S HUMMUS MADE EASY Southwest Black Bean flavor in a food processor. Process for about a minute or two until the beans are blended smooth to a dip like consistency. Set aside.
  • To make the Southwest Black Bean Quesadillas lay 4 flour tortillas on a flat surface. Spoon a tablespoon or two of the Southwest Black Bean Hummus on each tortilla. Sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese on top of the hummus on each quesadilla. Lay slices of red and green bell peppers on top of the cheese. Add slices of jalapenos, if desired. Top with another flour tortilla.
  • In a griddle or skillet over medium heat, heat a tablespoon of oil. When hot, using a spatula, place the Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadilla on the griddle or in the skillet. You may have to cook in batches.
  • Let the Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadilla cook for a minute or two on one side until the cheese starts to melt, and the tortilla becomes slightly crispy and golden brown, and then using a spatula, carefully turn over to cook the other side for a minute or two until the cheese is melted and the flour tortilla is slightly crispy with golden brown spots. Be careful not to overcook.
  • Remove from the griddle or skillet and slice each quesadilla into 6 triangles.
  • Serve the Southwest Black Bean Hummus Quesadillas with your favorite toppings, such as sour cream, chopped cilantro, tomatoes, avocado, etc.
