Preparation

  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Lightly spray one side of each tortilla with cooking spray. On unsprayed side of each of 4 tortillas, spread 1/4 cup beans. Sprinkle each evenly with 1/4 of the bell pepper, tomato, green chiles and cheese. Top each with remaining tortilla, sprayed side up; press down firmly.
  2. Place quesadillas on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until cheese is melted.
  3. To serve, cut each quesadilla into quarters. Serve with sour cream.

Expert Tips

  • Assemble these quesadillas on a large cookie sheet. The cookie sheet is convenient for transporting them to the grill. Use a broad pancake turner to turn the quesadillas.
  • Assemble the quesadillas up to one hour in advance. Slide them into resealable food-storage plastic bags until you are ready to grill.
  • To add more color and nutrients to these versatile quesadillas, add diced fresh vegetables or a scattering of leftover vegetables with the pepper and tomato.
