Total Cost: $7.26 recipe / $1.45 serving
Servings: 5 2 quesadillas each
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups chopped cooked chicken $1.50
  • 15 oz can black beans, drained $0.95
  • 1/4 red onion $0.19
  • 1 jalapeño $0.12
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro $0.23
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar $1.99
  • 1 tsp chili powder $0.10
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika $0.05
  • 1/4 tsp salt $0.02
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce $0.53
  • 10 7 inch flour tortillas $1.58
Instructions
  1. Add the chopped chicken and drained black beans to a large bowl. Finely dice the red onion. Remove the seeds from the jalapeño, then finely dice. Pull the cilantro leaves from their stems and roughly chop. Add the onion, jalapeño, cilantro, shredded cheddar, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt, and BBQ sauce to the bowl with the chicken and beans. Stir until everything is evenly combined.
  2. Place about 1/3 cup of the BBQ chicken mixture on each tortilla and spread it evenly over one half of the surface. Fold the tortilla closed. Cook the filled and folded tortillas in a dry skillet over medium-low heat, until the outside is brown and crispy, the filling has heated through, and the cheese has melted. Cut each quesadilla in half and serve.
