Homemade Quesadillas with Extra Quality Refried Beans

I was over at my best girl’s house last night, and she had these President’s Choice quesadillas. She didn’t really like them, so I had the last one.

It was surprisingly good, and I was left wanting more, but there were none left. So on my drive home, I stopped by the grocery store, picked up a few items and made some quesadillas in my kitchen. They were pretty good, and really easy to make. Simply spread some refried beans and whatever other ingredients you like in there (chicken, onions, peppers, etc) onto a tortilla, top it off with cheese and then fold it in half. Bake it in the oven until the cheese is melty and the tortilla is golden brown, and you’re in business.

Here’s a look at the finished product:

I have never bought refried beans before, but I found these “Herdez” refried black beans in a can.

Interestingly, on the back of the can, under the ingredients, it says “EXTRA QUALITY”, just kinda randomly thrown in there:


I’m not really sure what that means, or what it’s referring to, but it was definitely a selling point for me. The Old El Paso refried beans, despite being $1.49 more, made no mention of the level of quality, so I went with Herdez.

  1. DId you know you can actually just buy a can of kidney beans, and fry them up in a pan (and mush them up) with some S&P, garlic, and onion… for like a fraction of the cost of a can of ‘refried’ beans. WIN.
