Heat oven to 350 degrees, grease a baking sheet with spray.
Lay one tortilla on the baking sheet, sprinkle ½ cup of cheddar and ½ cup of pepper jack evenly on the tortilla. Top with the other tortilla and bake for 5 minutes until the cheese is melted. Remove from oven and set aside.
In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the beans and onions with the olive oil for 5 minutes. Add the spices, salt & pepper.
Transfer the beans to a small bowl and mash coarsely with a fork or potato masher.
Spread the bean mixture on top of the tortilla. Top with the cooked and shredded chicken. Drizzle the barbecue sauce on top of the chicken.
Sprinkle the remaining cheeses on top and bake for another 7-10 minutes until melted and bubbly.
Remove from the oven, garnish with green onions and/or cilantro.
Cut into slices with a pizza cutter and serve.
