Budget Series: Bean Quesadillas (v)

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 20 mins


- 1 tbsp Sunflower oil
- 1 Onion, finely chopped
- 2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 400g Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained (45p)
- 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
-1 tsp Cumin
- 8 Flour Tortillas (90p)
- 100g Gruyère, grated (55p)
- 200g tub Tomato Salsa, plus extra to serve (£1.10)
- Soured Cream, to serve (60p)

Total: £3.60


1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion and garlic for 2 mins. Add the cumin and cook for 1 min more. Tip in the beans, paprika and a splash of water. Using a potato masher, break the beans down as they warm through to make a rough purée. Season generously.

2. Spread the refried beans onto 4 of the tortillas and scatter over the cheese and coriander. Spoon over the salsa, then top with the remaining tortillas to make 4 sandwiches. Wipe the frying pan with kitchen paper and return to the heat or heat a griddle pan. Cook each sandwich for 1-2 mins on each side until the tortillas are crisp and golden and the cheese is melting. Serve warm, cut into wedges, with extra salsa and soured cream for dipping.

      Thank you for reading and commenting☺️💓

  2. I've never tries quesadilla before but then again they sound similar to burritos (maybe they are they same thing?) and I've had those and they are delicious.

    Thanks for sharing!
