    Very good. I added taco seasoning because I found the bean mixture a little bland. Or maybe the salsa I used was just bland. Or maybe I'm just bland. Who knows.  -  18 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Nice and easy! I've been making quesadillas for years and it never occurred to me to bake them (slow learner!). I threw the beans and salsa in the food processor and added some seasoning to them. I found that baking the quesadillas at 400 for 15 minutes gave them the crispiness I was looking for. Thanks!  -  19 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were great! I halved the recipe (which I shouldn't have). If you warm the beans a bit, they are very easy to mash. I added the salsa to taste, plus added chili powder. To make these crispier, bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. They were a hit with everyone in the family.  -  05 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
