These delicious quesadillas are filled with hearty refried beans, Monterey Jack cheese, fresh tomatoes, red onion, and cilantro. All that's left to do is cook the quesadillas one at a time in a skillet, which should take only about 3 minutes per side. Along with the guacamole and salsa, you can serve these quesadillas with a refreshing jicama slaw alongside. To make the slaw, toss 1 cup each of shredded jicama, carrots, green cabbage, and a handful of chopped fresh cilantro in a bowl until well combined. Stir in fresh lime juice, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
