Red bean quesadilla recipe

red-bean-quesadilla
I tasted Quesadillas only two times, and both the times I tasted only this red bean quesadillas. I had this once when we went to Raj restaurant, with my in-laws when they visited here. I loved it and again tasted and wanted to try it out at home. I could almost recreate the taste and am so happy with the result. They served it with Tomato Salsa and sour cream dip, it was yummy and tasting great with a buttery smell! Let me share the recipe straight away! Refer here for tortillas recipe.

Red bean quesadilla recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time15 mins     |  Cook time: 35 mins     Serves: 3

Ingredients

Red kidney bean - 1 can

Yellow onion - 1

Tomato - 1

Chopped coriander leaves - 2 tblsp

Lemon juice - 1 tsp

Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp

Green chilli - 1

Grated mozzarella - 1/4 cup

Salt - as needed

Tortillas - 6

Butter/ clarified butter - As needed


Method

  1. Drain the bean in the can and wash it. Take it in a bowl and mash it coarsely. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Chop onion and tomato(deseeded), chilli very finely. Mix onion with lemon juice.
  2. 1-quesadilla
  3. Take a tortilla and spread 3 to 4 tblsp mashed bean and top it with onion, tomato, green chilli, coriander and lastly cheese as shown in the picture. Spread only half of the tortilla.
  4. 2-quesadilla
  5. Fold it exactly into half to cover the spread completely. Heat a pan and grease with butter/ ghee and arrange the tortilla stuffed with bean. I toasted two at a time. Cook in low flame on both sides until golden brown and crispy. By that time, the cheese will also melt.
  6. 3-quesadilla

Notes

  • You can also spread over fully on a tortilla and close the filling with another tortilla, toast both sides and cut into quarters.
  • While flipping, do carefully. Especially when you do by the above method. I found my method easy, i.e; use a tortilla and fold into a half as shown in the picture.
  • Cheese can be increased or decreased as per your choice. More the cheese, more tasty, but watch out for the calories.
  • One tortilla make 2 quesadillas, it depends also how big you roll and how big you want.
Cut each in to two quarters and serve hot with tomato salsa and sour cream or a cheesy dip!
