deli ham - chopped
small onion - chopped
packet taco seasoning
can (15.5 oz) black beans - rinsed and drained
shredded monterrey jack cheese
shredded sharp cheddar
medium size tortillas
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium sauce pan. Add onion and ham. Cook until onions are translucent.
Add taco seasoning and water, mix well.
Add black beans, stirring to incorporate ingredients, increase heat to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in large cast iron or fry pan and let melt. Gently place 1 tortilla in pan.
Sprinkle cheddar cheese on tortilla - enough to cover to edges. Layer on ham & black bean mixture. Sprinkle layer of monterrey jack cheese and cover with another tortilla.
Cook on low heat until bottom is golden brown. Gently flip quesadilla and continue to cook until cheese is melted - about 1 minute.
Remove from heat to cutting board. Let rest 1 to 2 minutes then slice (I use a pizza cutter.)
Continue to build and cook other 3 quesadillas.
Serve with any of these extras ~ sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, lime wedges, shredded lettuce or green onions.
This recipe makes 4 quesadillas that can serve 4 people as a main dish or up to 8 as a snack or appetizer.
