Simple Breakfast Quesadillas
Let’s see how we can easily and quickly make simple breakfast quesadillas.
List of Ingredients
Here are the ingredients we will need to make simple breakfast Quesadillas.
- Eggs – 2
- Hot sauce, such as Cholula
- A pinch of salt
- Cooked black beans or pinto beans, washed and drained – 1/3 cup
- Extra virgin olive oil or butter – 2 teaspoons
- Chopped green onion – 1 tablespoon
- Finely chopped cilantro – 1 tablespoon
- Chopped pickled jalapenos (optional) – 1 tablespoon
- Whole grain tortilla – 1 medium-sized (8-inch)
- Packaged grated sharp cheddar cheese – 1/2 cup
- For serving, salsa or extra hot sauce
Let’s see the instructions step-by-step.
Whisk together the eggs, spicy sauce, and salt in a mixing bowl until well combined. Combine the beans and keep them aside.
In a medium-sized skillet made of either non-stick or well-seasoned cast iron, melt the butter over moderate heat until it bubbles. Add the egg mixture and cook it, frequently stirring, for 1-3 minutes. Move the mixture to another bowl to pause the cooking process (finish the cooking of the eggs in the quesadilla). Mix in the cilantro, green onion, and jalapeno.
Warm the tortilla in a separate large skillet over moderate heat, flipping frequently. Over one-half of the tortillas, spread about half of the cheese when the skillet and tortilla are both warm. Place the scrambled eggs on top of the cheese, and then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the eggs.
Place the empty tortilla half over the toppings. Don’t stop cooking the quesadillas too soon. Let it cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the bottom is golden and crispy. If required, reduce the heat to avoid scorching the tortilla. Flip the tortilla and cook until the other side is brown and crispy.
Remove the quesadilla from the skillet and set it aside on a cutting board. After allowing it to cool and firm for a few minutes, use a sharp knife to divide each tortilla into two pieces. Your simple breakfast quesadillas are ready. Serve it immediately with your preferred salsa and/or hot sauce.
