  • Yield: 4 (8 half quesadillas) 1x


These baked quesadillas in the oven are easy to make on a sheet pan and have the best crispy exterior! Game changer, right here.


  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 drizzle olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon each cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, and kosher salt
  • 1 large or 2 small green onions
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup smoked mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup pico de gallo
  • 8 6” tortillas (flour or corn)
  • For topping: Guacamole, sour cream, salsa, cilantro


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Drain the rinse the beans, then mix them with the olive oil and seasonings. Thinly slice the green onion.
  3. Brush a baking sheet with a bit of olive oil. Place the tortillas on the sheet and rub them to coat them in olive oil.
  4. On each tortilla, place 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese, 1 tablespoon seasoned beans, 1 tablespoon green onion, 2 tablespoons smoked mozzarella, 1 tablespoon pico de gallo, and 1 pinch kosher salt. If desired, add a drizzle of hot sauce. Fold over the tortilla into a half circle (this makes it easy to flip, instead of making full quesadillas with 2 tortillas). Complete for each tortilla, then brush the tops with oil.
  5. Bake 8 minutes. Then flip and bake 6 to 7 minutes more until browned and crisp on the outside. Cut into 3 wedges each with a pizza cutter. Serve topped with cilantro and sour cream, and with guacamole and extra pico de gallo for dipping.
