Shredded Beef & Black Bean Quesadillas

Quesadillas have quickly become one of my staple go-to meals. Rarely do I not have something that wouldn’t make a decent quesadilla, and usually the main ingredients come from leftovers. These particular quesadillas were made up from leftover pot roast, a (BPA-free) can of black beans, and shredded cheddar cheese. Serve with a salad or skillet veggies and some salsa on the side and you’ve got a meal that the kids will love.

Shredded Beef &Black Bean Quesadillas

leftover pot roast, shredded

1 (15-oz) can black beans, drained

4 oz. chopped spinach (1/2 block)

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

8 flour tortillas (whole wheat works good)

cooking spray

*I use a Foreman Grill but you could just as easily use a skillet or the toaster oven.

Heat up the grill or skillet, spray it with the cooking spray and lay a tortilla down for a few seconds to get it pliable and soft. Spoon in your ingredients and fold the tortilla over. If using a skillet make sure you flip the quesadilla so both sides get crisped.

Other Sides and Toppings:

vidalia or red onion


green pepper

black olives


pinto beans


turkey bacon

ranch dressing

*Leave out the meat, load up with veggies such as roasted red pepper, zucchini, and onions and have a vegetarian meal 🙂
