SEASON your quesadillas with sautéed Mann’s Broccoli Cole Slaw and you just might get this review, “Gosh Mom, everything you make with broccoli cole slaw turns out great.” True story! I love how the broccoli cole slaw adds texture, flavor, and depth to a chicken and black bean quesadilla! Enjoy!


  • 2 cups Mann’s Broccoli Cole Slaw®
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil of choice, divided
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cooked chicken, rotisserie
  • 1 (15 oz) canned black beans, rinse, drain
  • 3/4 cup jalapeno cheese sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 8 (6 to 8-inch) flour tortillas
  • Serve with: sour cream, picante sauce, chopped cilantro, and green onions


  1. Sauté the broccoli cole slaw and granulated garlic in 1 tablespoon oil, over medium heat, for 1 minute. Add chicken, black beans, cheese sauce, onions, and granulated garlic, and cook until heated through, about 3-4 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in cilantro. Salt to taste.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil, over medium heat, on a griddle. Depending on the size of the cooking area, arrange one or two tortillas. Spread about 1/2 cup broccoli slaw mixture over tortilla and top with 1/4 cup cheese. Grill quesadilla until toasty brown on both sides, about 4 minutes. Repeat until all quesadillas are grilled.
  3. Top with sour cream, fresh chopped cilantro, green onions, and picante sauce.


Variation: I used homemade jalapeno cheese sauce made from milk, butter, flour, fresh jalapenos, and sharp cheese. If you don’t have prepared cheese sauce (homemade or store-bought) you could add 1/2 cup cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup sour cream to the broccoli cole slaw and chicken mixture.

Leftover grilled chicken would be great in this dish!
