Spinach & Black Bean Quesadillas – A meal that is sure to please everyone in the family

Spinach & Blackbean Quesadilla

Finding a meal that is adult and kid friendly is sometimes hard to do. Mom wants something healthy and flavorful, but the kids want something that is…not either of those things. This Spinach and Black Bean Quesadilla is my favorite go-to recipe that is guaranteed to please everyone! The kids LOVE this meal and always gobble it up – which makes me one very happy Mom.

I’ve tried MANY different tortillas and MANY different non-stick sprays but have found that the Mi Mama’s Tortillas from Wal-Mart and Butter flavored Crisco no-stick spray is the absolute best for quesadillas! I won’t even buy the others anymore…they’re a waste! They fall apart, are too flimsy and don’t brown well at all.


First I spray the pan with the Crisco spray and lay down one tortilla, add a little regular shredded Colby Jack cheese (also from Wal-Mart – the great value brand), a handful of black beans, rinsed, from a can and a handful of baby spinach. I then add a little more cheese on top of the spinach to just hold everything in place.

I  then place another tortilla on top and place a sauce pan or another small skillet on top to kinda smoosh it all together. (I’m telling you, this is a very technical recipe!)  After a few minutes, check the bottom to see if it’s brown. If it’s golden brown..spray the top tortilla with a little Crisco and flip! When that’s all golden brown – it’s done!


We usually serve this with some sour cream on the side, green beans and applesauce. There you have it – a very healthy kid AND parent friendly lunch that you’ll all enjoy!!
