We kept these classic quesadillas hearty while using light and low-fat ingredients like black beans, chunky salsa, jalapeno peppers and more. Melted Sargento® Shredded Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican holds everything together between two fat-free tortillas and a smooth garnish of fat-free sour cream. Perfect for your next fiesta!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, divided
  • 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp. chopped bottled jalapeno peppers
  • 4 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup chunky-style salsa
  • 1/4 cup fat-free or light sour cream (optional)
Directions
  1. Combine 1-1/2 cups cheese, beans, cilantro and jalapeño peppers in a medium bowl; mix well. Spoon onto tortillas; fold each tortilla over.
  2. Coat large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat until hot. Place 2 quesadillas in skillet. Cook 1 minute or until golden brown on bottom. Turn; sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese. Cover; reduce heat. Cook 2 minutes more or until golden brown and cheese is melted. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Repeat with remaining quesadillas and cheese. Serve with salsa and sour cream, if desired.
