Jane’s Kitchen: Solar Eclipse Quesadillas

8 12-inch tortillas 

1 16-ounce can refried beans (Rosarita) 

1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix 

12 ounces Mexican cheese blend, shredded 

Salsa and sour cream to serve 


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mash beans with taco seasoning. Build quesadillas by covering two-thirds of a tortilla with cheese and spreading the bean mixture in the middle. Fold the remaining third of the tortilla over, creating a visible crescent of cheese. Use only about 2-3 tablespoons of filling for each quesadilla, don’t overstuff. 


Place quesadillas on a greased sheet pan. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is crisped. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
