Mango Black Bean Quesadillas with avocado, red pepper, cilantro, onion, and jalapeño make a quick and easy meal that kids and adults love!
We love quick and easy meals year round, but especially during the hot summer months. I don’t want to spend hours slaving over the hot stove and I don’t like turning on the oven, unless I am baking cookies. Cookies are always worth it:)
One of our favorite easy summer meals are these Mango Black Bean Quesadillas. The boys love them and ask for them every single week. I am ok with that because I love them too:)
You have to turn on the stove to make these black bean quesadillas, but they only take 15 minutes tops to make. You can be in and out of the kitchen in no time and the whole family will love them.
The mango and black bean combo is crazy good. The pop of sweetness from the mango will WOW you! I also add in red bell pepper, avocado, cilantro, lime, green onion, and a little jalapeño. Oh, and plenty of cheese, you’ve gotta have cheese!
A few quesadilla notes:
- We like to use flour tortillas for these quesadillas, but if you need the quesadillas to be gluten-free, you can use corn tortillas or your favorite gluten-free tortillas.
- To pick a perfect mango at the grocery store, squeeze the mango gently. A ripe mango will give slightly.
- If you are making quesadillas for the kiddos or if you don’t like spicy, you can leave out the jalapeño.
- We like to use shredded Pepper Jack or a Mexican blend cheese, but Cheddar or Monterey Jack would also work well.
Looking for an easy, breezy summer meal? Make Mango Black Bean Quesadillas. They make a great lunch or dinner. You can even cut them into triangles and serve them as a party appetizer. They would be perfect for a summer pool party! Enjoy!

You’ve got me with mangoes and black bean. They look fabulous!
hey girl- these look so good! Y’all have a great weekend!
These look wonderful!
These look so fresh and delicious. My kids would love them!!
This recipe looks so nice! It feels lovely to come across your blog and I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes.
Do you dip these in anything? I’m making them tonight, wasn’t sure if they would be good with sour cream? Thanks!
Yes, you can serve with sour cream. We like salsa and guacamole too!
Thanks so much! Love all your recipes I’m sure this will be great!
I made them once. Wasn’t sure if my husband would like them. He did!! Making them again today. Great recipe
Glad you liked the recipe!
This recipe looks great but I keep on screwing up the flipping of the quesadilla. The filling comes out everywhere and it gets ruined, my pan is hard to clean, and I’m frustrated. What is the trick?
You’re not alone! I just attempted this, and it was comical how badly I screwed up the flipping. For my second attempt, I put one tortilla down, spooned filling onto half, sprinkled cheese, then folded the other half of the tortilla onto itself. This was much easier to manage when flipping.
NEED these in my life!
Delish combo, and so easy. Will definitely make again.
These sound delicous, and I plan to make them for my husband and me. I just have a question. Are these enough to satisfy your family of 4? My husband and I are not big eaters and we are not overweight, but I think we could both eat a whole one for a meal. I see U indicate that it serves 2-4. Just curious.
Delicious and easy! I also make two in a skillet at one time, as it makes it so much easier to flip without spilling everything out onto the skillet.
Hi Maria we had your black bean soup and black bean mango quesadillas last night that I made; they were so delicious; thanks- Harlan
