Black bean and Corn Quesadillas

One of my husband and I’s favorite quick dinners to make is quesadillas. The filing possibilities for quesadillas are probably endless. But we like to keep things simple and use ingredients that we typically always have in our pantry and/or refrigerator. We use Daiya brand “cheese” to make these but you could easily substitute real cheese if you wanted to. This recipe makes 4 quesadillas.

Black bean and Corn Quesadillas

1 can black beans drained and rinsed

½ cup of frozen corn

I bag of Daiya cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon chili powder

4 large flour tortillas

Non stick cooking spray

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place black beans, corn, cheese, and chili powder in a large bowl and gently mix. Set aside while you prepare baking sheets.

Lightly spray two baking sheets with non stick cooking spray and place two tortillas on each baking sheet. Spread bean mixture evenly on half of the 4 tortillas and fold remaining half over filling.

Bake in the oven for 15 minutes flipping quesadillas over half way through baking time. 
Allow quesadillas to cool for 3 minutes before cutting into triangles and enjoying. Serve with your favorite toppings. We like to eat ours with Tofutti Sour Cream and Sambal Oelek Chili Paste
