Creamy Black Bean Quesadillas

I love cooking magazines.  I love to look through them to not only find new recipes, but to find new ideas and techniques to incorporate into my cooking.

The other day I was looking through the newest issue of Paula Deen’s magazine, by the way I love her magazine, and I saw a recipe for quesadillas that caught my attention.  It had cream cheese in it.  Well, I knew I loved cream cheese in my enchiladas, so the idea of it in quesadillas sounded good. I did not follow the recipe exactly, but I did incorporate the idea of cream cheese into a quesadilla we already enjoyed.

What I like about quesadillas is that it makes a quick, easy, and frugal meal. Not only that, you can really change the way you make them each time.  I made these without meat, but you could easily add chicken or vegetables.  Sometimes we like to add corn to these. You could use different cheeses or beans.  You can really do quite a bit to keep them interesting.

One of the things we like to do in the summer is grill our quesadillas.  It gives them a unique flavor and it is easy to do.  We make them often in the summer for lunch or a quick meal for dinner.

For more frugal meals see $5 dinners.
