Bean and Cheese Crisp (Quesadillas)

The Andersen household rarely lets a week go by without consuming Bean and Cheese Crisps for at least one meal. (That’s what they call them in Arizona, where Neil was raised.) This is a go-to meal for our babysitters to make when we are away, on Sunday afternoons after church, or on weekdays before school. The beans add a bit of nutrition and fiber. Serve this with some salsa and a smoothie and you have a complete meal!
