PREP TIME: 15 minutes
(not including time to make
15-Minute Refried Beans
and Basic Cashew Cheese
ACTIVE TIME: 10 minutes
2 cups 15-Minute Refried
4 flour tortillas (gluten-free if
Basic Cashew Cheese Sauce
Salsa and/or guacamole
1. Spread ½ cup of the
beans on one half of a
tortilla. Drizzle cheese sauce
over the beans. Gently fold
the other side of the tortilla
over the beans and cheese.
Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
2. Heat a large frying pan, preferably cast iron, over medium-heat. Place one to two (if they’ll both fit)
quesadillas in the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until golden and crispy. Transfer them to
a plate and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas. Serve
immediately with salsa and/or guacamole.
To make these quesadillas come together in a snap, you can prepare the refried beans and/or the cheese sauce in advance. It’s also a great
way to use up any leftover refried beans you may have from making Mexican Pizza with 15-Minute Refried Beans .
To ensure that this dish is soy-free, remember to use coconut aminos in the refried beans and chickpea miso in the cashew cheese sauce.
