Black Beans & Goat Cheese

Our Goat Cheese is a traditional fresh Chèvre that's made from grass-fed goats that graze outside. The famously fresh-tasting French goat cheese has a slightly salty and tangy flavor packed in a rich texture. Paired with black beans, all the best qualities of goat cheese are enhanced.

Slightly sweet, black beans have a creamy, fresh-tasting inside and an earthy, mild profile – the perfect accompaniment to our wonderfully tangy farmhouse goat cheese.

Here are three simple and delicious ways to savor goat cheese with black beans.

Traditional quesadillas are simply toasted tortillas with melted cheese. Give them a fresh twist by using our tangy goat cheese. To make the pairing extra special, remove the goat cheese from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving so it softens enough to spread on the tortillas. Then simply use a skillet to heat up the tortillas and melt the cheese and beans into a delicious mixture. Use corn tortillas instead of flour for more texture and add chicken or chopped vegetables to make them more filling.
