Makes 2 quesadillas which can be cut in to 12 wedges.
4 large flour tortillas
½ cup cream cheese at room temperature
¾ cup tinned black beans, drained and rinsed
6 strips bacon, cooked until crisp
½ cup chopped green onion
¼ cup chopped fresh coriander
1 cup grated medium cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Monterrey Jack cheese
hot sauce (optional)
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
good quality salsa and sour cream for garnish
1. Lay out tortillas on a work surface. Spread cream cheese evenly over all 4 tortillas. Spoon black beans over 2 tortillas then crumble bacon over beans. Sprinkle bacon with green onions and coriander and divided grated cheeses evenly between the 2. Add hot sauce if you wish, sandwich tortillas together and press gently.
2. Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and gently place in quesadilla. Cook until tortilla is crisp and golden, about 4 minutes, then gently flip and cook until crisp, another 3 to 4 minutes. Remove and let rest for 3 minutes before slicing. Repeat with remaining quesadilla.
3. Slice each quesadilla into 6 and serve with salsa and sour cream.
