  1. If using refried beans, spread half of the 1/4 cup on one tortilla with a table knife. Place the tortilla, bean side up, in a skillet at medium heat. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the tortilla. Top with 1 plain tortilla.
  2. Cook over medium heat about 3 minutes, or until cheese begins to melt. Use a pancake turner to heat the other side. Repeat with the remaining tortillas, refried beans, and cheese. Cut each quesadilla into 6 triangles. Serve with salsa, if you like.
