The premise of the dish starts with melted cheese and spicy chiles tucked between two crisp tortillas, but we have sparked that up considerably.



In a bowl combine black beans, red onions, tomatoes, cilantro, chiles and lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Combine chèvre and grated cheese together in a small bowl.

Preheat a 10-inch or larger skillet on medium heat. Spread softened butter or oil on one side of two tortillas. Place one tortilla, butter-side down, in the hot skillet. Spread 1/4 of the cheese mixture on top of tortilla and top with 1/4 of the black bean mixture. Place the other tortilla, butter side up, on top.

Cook until the bottom tortilla is golden brown; using a pancake turner, carefully flip the quesadilla over and cook until golden brown on the other side. Repeat process 3 more times with remaining tortillas and filling.

To serve, cut each quesadilla into 8 wedges and serve with a dollop of sour cream and salsa on the side.

A nice change of pace for boring ol' quesadillas

Usually I think of quesadillas as an easy meal I slap together with whatever combo of cheese, beans and veggies I happen to have on hand, and I'm not generally likely to have this particular range of ingredients taking up space in my fridge/pantry, but one day I was looking to use up some chevre and this recipe fell into my lap, so I gave it a try and was glad I did. The tomatoes (even seeded) added a fair amount of moisture to the quesadillas, which made for a bit of messy eating, but the taste and balance of flavors was really good and I'd definitely make them again.

Absolutely Delicious

This is the first time I made quesadillas and it is now a favorite. The cheeses blended to enhance each other, and the layers of flavors are just wonderful. I used shredded "Mexican Cheese" mixture from Costco and goat cheese. Terrific!
