2 Soft Corn Tortillas
1/4 cup Kuner's Refried Black Beans with Lime Juice
1/4 cup Colby Monterey Jack Cheese, Shredded
1/3 cup Bird's Eye Ultimate Southwest Blend (frozen corn, onion, black bean, and poblano pepper mix)
2 Tbsp. Sour Cream
2 Tbsp. Pico de Gallo
Cooking Spray


The first step is optional. I spray each side of the tortillas with cooking spray. Then place the tortillas on a cookie sheet. Broil them on high for 1 minute on each side in the oven to soften them.

Next preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Spread the re-fried black beans evenly on each tortilla. Be sure to coat close to the edge of the tortilla.

Next top each tortilla with the colby jack cheese. Only 1/4 cup!  Make sure you measure it or it won't be a 350-calorie quesadilla!

Microwave the frozen Southwest blend for 30 seconds to thaw/heat the vegetables. Drain and add to each tortilla.

Bake each tortilla open-faced in the oven for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted. Next broil them on high for 2 minutes until the cheese is slightly browned for added flavor. Make sure you keep an eye on them so that the tortillas don't burn. Then flip one tortilla on top of the other and cut it into quarters. Garnish with the sour cream and pico de gallo.

Serving Size: 1 quesadilla
