Quesadillas are one of my back pocket recipes. I pretty much have flour tortillas and cheese on hand at all times so I can whip up quesadillas for a super quick supper or lunch.

I vary the fillings of the quesadillas.  Sometimes I make just plain cheese, or I may add chicken and green chiles, and once I even added leftover Sloppy Joes filling.

Refried bean quesadillas came about one time when I wanted something more filling than plain cheese quesadillas but I was out of green chiles so I couldn’t make chicken and green chile quesadillas. I did have a can of refried beans, shredded cheese, hot sauce, and flour tortillas.

A few simple ingredients and about twenty minutes later dinner was served. Serve with chips and salsa and a green salad for a quick and tasty supper.
