Black Bean and Goat Cheese Quesadillas
One quesadilla per person is never quite enough, so this recipe makes an extra to share.
Martha Stewart Living, September 2008
- Prep Time 10 minutes
- Total Time 25 minutes
- Yield Serves 4
- 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained (1 1/2 cups)
- 3 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (1/2 cup)
- 1 medium tomato, seeded and coarsely chopped
- 3/4 cup corn kernels (from 2 ears of corn)
- 2 scallions, coarsely chopped
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh oregano
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 10 six-inch corn tortillas
- Mash beans in a medium bowl until chunky. Add goat cheese, tomato, corn, scallions, and oregano. Season with salt and pepper, and stir until well combined.
- Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Spread 1/2 cup bean mixture evenly over 1 tortilla, and top with another tortilla. Repeat with remaining bean mixture and tortillas.
- Raise heat to medium-high. Grill quesadillas, 1 or 2 at a time, until grill marks appear and filling is hot, about 2 minutes per side. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
To give the quesadillas a smoky flavor, cook them on an outdoor grill rather than in a grill pan, until the cheese melts and the tortillas are crisp.
