To make these, you’ll need 8 large (8-inch) flour tortillas, 1 cup of refried beans, 8 ounces of shredded Cabot Monterey Jack, Cabot Pepper Jack, or Cabot Lite50 Jalapeño Cheddar, and ¼ sliced green onions, plus Cabot Sour Cream and tomato salsa for topping, if desired.
Spread each of four tortillas with ¼ cup refried beans, a quarter of cheese, and a quarter of green onions. Then top each with one of the four remaining tortillas. Place a large skillet over medium heat and, when hot, cook first quesadilla for approximately one minute, until browned on the underside. Flip over with a spatula and cook for another minute, until the second side is browned and the cheese is melted. Repeat with all four quesadillas. When ready to serve, cut each quesadilla into eight pieces and, if desired, serve topped with sour cream and/or salsa.
