  • Air Fryer



  • Dice bell peppers.
  • Preheat Air Fryer to 350F.
  • Assemble quesadillas by spreading 1/4 cup of refried beans over one quesadilla, top with 1/3 cup cheese, and 1/4 of the bell peppers. Place the other tortilla on top.
  • Spray bottom with cooking spray and place in air fryer rack. IMPORTANT! Place a trivet or something to weigh down on the top half of the tortilla. I used one of the accessory racks that came with the Air Fryer accessory kit I bought. If you don't, the tortilla on top may fly up and get burnt to shreds. Luckily, when this happened to me, I recognized the burning smell and stopped the air fryer before anything catastrophic happened to me.
  • Cook quesadillas for 4 minutes, then flip, cook until golden brown and crispy on the outside and melty cheese on the inside! How do you flip? I used air fryer parchment liners that I could pull out easily iwth the quesadilla on them, then flip the whole thing, but it wasn't the easiest thing I've ever done!
