Meal Idea - Refried Bean Quesadilla

Here is a quick meal idea!

I try and keep a container of homemade refried beans in my fridge for a quick grab and go snack.

Sometimes I want something a little fancier so I make a quesadilla. If a quesadilla can be called fancy!

Heat up a dry skillet and place a whole wheat tortilla in it. One half of it, spread your beans and top with whatever you like.. I used nutritional yeast, green onions and chopped campari tomatoes in this one.

This is a good recipe to use up any leftover veggies you have in your fridge.

Fold it over and allow to brown before carefully flipping it and browning the other side. I'd normally top this with guacamole but I was out of avocados. It would also be delicious with my vegan queso sauce drizzled on top!

Super easy, super quick with no time for excuses.


  1. I'd love to see your recipe for homemade refried beans. I've tried and failed several times. Thanks!

    1. Hi Tina.. I can recommend two recipes ... one super quick hat uses canned pintos tand one that takes a little bit of prep with dry beans!
