Quesadillas make an excellent appetizer or meal and are easy to make ahead of time. Just make the sandwiches of two tortillas with the cheese and black bean mash filling, stack and separate with wax paper. ..
Drain black beans and place in a food processor
Add the jalapeno, garlic, salt and cilantro
Slowly add chicken broth and puree until smooth
Brush Olive Oil on bottom side of one tortilla, place face down
Spread 1/8 of the black bean puree on the bottom tortilla
Sprinkle 3/4 cup of cheese on the bottom tortilla
Spread 1/8 of the black bean puree on the top tortilla
Spoon 4 Tablespoons of Salsa on top of the cheese and cover with the top tortilla
Brush top tortilla with oil
Preheat grill to medium or 350F at the GrillGrate surface.
Place quesadillas on the grill two at a time unless your grill is really large
After grilling for 3-4 minutes, use the Grate Tool to quarter turn the quesadilla and check out the searing on the bottom of the quesadilla. If the searing is dark/black turn the heat down. Cook an additional 2 minutes and flip the quesadilla
After 2 more minutes give the quesadilla a quarter turn. It should basically be ready. Check to see the cheese has melted.
Use the GrateTool to place quesadilla on cutting board and cut into 8 slices after letting stand for 3-4 minutes.
