10 Best Five-Ingredient Dinner Meals


Get ready for a very easy five-ingredient fiesta! Start by heating up a serving of canned black or pinto beans. Place a tortilla in a skillet and sprinkle shredded cheese on top -- jack cheese melts well. Spoon the beans evenly over the cheese. Add a bit more cheese on top of the beans, and then top it off with a second tortilla. Cook both sides of the quesadilla until it's lightly browned and the cheese is melted. Top it with salsa or pico de gallo and sour cream.
