Tres Amigos: Three Cheese Black Bean Toasterdilla

 Active time: 5 min Cook time: 3-6 min Serves: 1

Quesadillas. A classic Mexican dish that has remained a staple since the 16th century, and for good reason. While they’re traditionally warmed on a griddle, what if we told you that you could make an ooey gooey quesadilla without the greasy mess of a stove? Inspired by Tex-Mex cuisine, this tasty “toasterdilla” recipe will not only satisfy your cheese cravings but will also make a crowd pleasing Cinco de Mayo appetizer or tasty lunch that anyone can enjoy.



  • 1(12-inch) flour tortilla 
  • 1/2 packed cup shredded three cheese Mexican blend
  • 3 oz black beans 
  • 2 oz corn, canned or fresh 
  • 1/4 red pepper, diced 
  • 1 Tbsp. green onion 
  • 1/4 cup black olives 
  • 1 tsp. butter 
  • Salsa verde or sour cream for dipping



  • In a small skillet over medium heat, add tsp of butter until melted.
  • Add corn, onion, olives, and pepper to pan and cook until soft.


  • In two quadrants across from one another, place a handful of cheese on the tortilla.
  • Add the cooked mixture of onions, olive, and pepper to one pile of cheese and chopped green onion to the other.
  • Fold one side to the center of the tortilla and do the same on the other side.
  • Bring the bottom half up to meet the top and fold the tortilla in the center.

      TOAST IT.

      • Now place it in the Toastie Press and close and lock the press. Wipe around the outside of the press to clean off any drips with a paper towel. 
      • Place the filled Toastie Press into the right slot of your Revolution Toaster with the handles facing out.

      Now make your next selection based on the model you have:

      Introducing the Revolution Toastie Press

      Because big appliances are a big pain.

      We’re going to assume we don’t need to sell you on the idea of a toastie. Who doesn’t love the melty-deliciousness of a pressed sandwich, right? But big appliances are, well, a big pain. You need to lug them out, they can be hard to clean and they take up valuable counter space. This panini attachment is our solution: Simple, compact and super easy to use it gives you the sandwiches you love, minus the mess and hassle you don’t.

      • Heats up quickly: Deliver the toastie of your dreams in seconds not minutes. (Learn more about our safe, eco-friendly InstaGLO technology here!)
      • Easy to clean: Wipe down with a sponge or pop it in the dishwasher.
      • Small footprint: Stash it with your coffee, in your bread box or just sit it in the toaster when not in use.

      Faster. Smarter. Tastier.
