Recipe: Black Bean and Cheese Crispy Open-Faced Quesadillas

Last season, on The Next Food Network Star, my favorite Melissa d'Arabian was the winner.  Her new show is $10 Dinners, and I love it!

She made some Black Bean Hummus and Crispy Open-Faced Quesadillas recently, and I thought they looked super.  So, for dinner tonight, I decided to combine the two recipes.  I spread the black bean hummus on top of whole wheat Omega-3 tortillas that I lightly pan toasted, and topped with shredded Mexican cheese.  Then, I broiled them, like Melissa did on her show.

We also topped them with salsa (I used mango salsa.  Mmmmmm.)

The kids loved them.  We loved them.  They were filling.  We folded them in half, and that would make great lunches.  The girl said she wouldn't mind it in her lunch, in her thermos, so it could stay warm.

All in all, a total winner.  Check out Melissa.  She's awesome.

Pin It!
