Broiled Pepper Jack Quesadillas

Active Time: 5 minutes   |   Total Time: 10 minutes   |   Serves Serve 2 to 4

  • 2 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup refried black beans
  • 1/2 cup grated Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 avocado
  • your favorite hot sauce

Heat the broiler (with the oven rack about 4 inches from the top).

Place the tortillas on a rimmed sheet pan. Spread 1/4 cup of the beans over 1/2 of each tortilla. Sprinkle the cheese over the beans. Fold the tortillas in half.

Broil until the tops of the tortillas are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Use a metal spatula to flip them over and broil the second side 1 to 2 minutes more until golden brown and the cheese has melted.

Using a chef’s knife, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Place the two halves, cut-side up, on cutting board. Use the tip of your paring knife to carefully make slices into the avocado flesh (do not cut through the skin). Then scoop out with a spoon and serve with the quesadillas and hot sauce.
