Step-by-Step

  1. In a bowl combine black beans, red onions, tomatoes, cilantro, chiles and lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Combine chèvre and grated cheese together in a small bowl.
  3. Preheat a 10-inch or larger skillet on medium heat. Spread softened butter or oil on one side of two tortillas. Place one tortilla, butter-side down, in the hot skillet. Spread 1/4 of the cheese mixture on top of tortilla and top with 1/4 of the black bean mixture. Place the other tortilla, butter side up, on top.

  5. To serve, cut each quesadilla into 8 wedges and serve with a dollop of sour cream and salsa on the side.
