Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut half the onion into 1/4-inch pieces (whole onion for 4 ppl). Cut tomato into 1/2-inch pieces. Zest, then juice lime. Roughly chop cilantro. Drain and rinse beans. Lightly mash beans in a medium bowl. (NOTE: It's OK if there are some whole beans throughout the mixture!) Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Combine sour cream and 1/2 tsp Mexican Seasoning (dbl for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Add tomatoes, cilantro, half the onions, half the lime zest, half the lime juice and 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to another medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2-3 min. Add kale and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until kale is tender, 5-6 min.
Add garlic, beans and remaining Mexican Seasoning to the same pan. Cook, stirring often, until garlic is fragrant and beans are warmed through, 1-2 min. Stir in remaining lime zest and remaining lime juice. Transfer bean filling back into the same medium bowl (from step 1). Season with salt and pepper. Carefully wipe the pan clean.
Arrange tortillas on a clean surface. Spread bean filling over one side of each tortilla. Sprinkle cheese over filling. Fold tortillas in half to enclose filling. Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil, then 3 quesadillas. Cook until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Repeat with remaining quesadillas.
Cut quesadillas into wedges. Divide quesadillas between plates. Serve with salsa and crema.
