Kale Black Bean Quesadilla (+ VIDEO)

  • Author: Mary
  • Prep Time: 2 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup torn kale leaves
  • 2 medium tortillas
  • 1/4 cup Pacific Foods Refried Beans (I used black)
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese
  • salt & pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a small frying pan. When hot, add the kale with a small amount of water. Cook, stirring, until the kale is totally wilted and the water has evaporated (3-4 minutes). Remove from heat, and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a heavy pan over medium-high heat. Spread the beans on one tortilla, and place it tortilla-side-down in the pan. Sprinkle with about half of the cheese, then the cooked kale, topped with the remaining cheese and tortilla.
  3. Cook until the bottom tortilla is golden and crispy, then flip, and cook until both tortillas are golden and crispy and the cheese is fully melted.
  4. Remove from the heat, cool for 30 seconds, then cut and eat!
