These basic quesadillas come together quickly and adapt well to many variations. Add salsa, sautéed onions or peppers and diced red or white onion, if you like. Serve with a green salad for dinner or alone as a hearty after-school snack.
Set a heavy skillet over medium heat. When hot, add a tortilla and warm. Flip tortilla. Sprinkle half of the cheese evenly over tortilla. Lightly cover cheese with half of the beans and cilantro. Top with a second tortilla. Flip and warm on the second side. When beans are hot and cheese is melted, slide quesadilla onto a cutting board and slice into four wedges.
