4 servings (serving size: 3 quesadilla wedges and about 1/3 cup salsa)

Heating all of the quesadillas at the same time in the oven is faster than cooking them one at a time in a skillet.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare the quesadillas, preheat the broiler.

Step 2

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, 1/2 cup cilantro, and beans; cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. Place tortillas on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Top each tortilla with 1/2 cup bean mixture and 3 tablespoons cheese; fold in half. Lightly coat tops with cooking spray. Broil 3 minutes or until cheese melts and tortillas begin to brown. Cut each tortilla into 3 wedges.

Step 3

To prepare salsa, combine corn and remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve with quesadillas.

This is easy to prepare and doesn't take too much time. Based on other reviews, I cooked the corn in a skillet with some scallions. I added cumin and canned chopped chilies to the bean mixture. It turned out so tasty. I had enough to make 5 servings. Will definitely make again.

Roasted the corn with onions as suggested by another reviewer. I was really impressed with this recipe, not only was it delicious, it was a breeze to put together and surprisingly filling. I served this with avacado slices and sour cream. This recipe is great just as is, I wouldn't change a thing other than what I previously mentioned.

Served this last night. It was great! I added a small can of diced green chilis and a tsp. of cumin to the bean mix. Additionally, I added a bit more cheese on top of the beans before closing the tortilla (so it would stick). To the salsa I added an anehiem chili and just before serving I added a diced avocado. My guests loved them!

Try using regular tomato salsa, and toast the frozen corn in a hot nonstick skillet. Stir constantly until it begins to brown, pop and smell toasty. Mix corn with the beans, some chopped red onion, cheese and, unless you're serving to small children, some seeded chopped jalapeno or chipolte pepper. Yum!

Excellent meal and you can make variations on this theme by including different ingredients in the quesadillas.
