This healthy Black Bean and Corn Hummus Quesadilla is an easy lunch or weeknight dinner. It is loaded with flavor!
Quesadillas were one of my go-to meals when I worked outside the home. They come together quickly and easily.
This Black Bean and Corn Hummus Quesadilla is no different, especially if you make the black bean and corn mixture ahead of time.
I've included it in several recipes so you can always switch things up a bit each night.
The black bean and corn mixture has taco spices. The chipotle hummus and salsa add more spice and compliment the taste of the black bean and corn mixture.
I used homemade chipotle hummus, which only takes a few minutes to make. You could always use store-bought if you need to, but like I said it takes only a few minutes to make.
It is way cheaper than store-bought. Those little tubs just aren't worth it.
This is an overview of the ingredients. To see the full list of ingredients with measurements and instructions, see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Tortillas: I used brown rice gluten-free tortillas. Use your favorite.
- Chipotle Hummus: I used chipotle hummus because I like the spicy smoky flavor. You could use any homemade or store-bought hummus.
- Black bean and corn mixture: Has onions, garlic, and taco spices. You could add other vegetables into the mix if desired.
- Salsa: You could use homemade restaurant style salsa or your favorite store-bought salsa.
- Olive oil or spray: To cook the quesadilla.

- To save money, make the homemade chipotle hummus. It only takes a few minutes to make and you get about twice as much for a fraction of the price.
- I used brown rice tortillas for these but my favorite tortillas are some spinach amaranth tortillas from my local Farmer's Market. The tortillas you use really make a difference. (I wish I would have had my favorite tortillas the day I made these.)
- If you prefer a Jalapeño Cilantro Hummus then use that, or your favorite.
