Black Bean Quesadillas

Black Bean Quesadillas

What you need:

1 TBLS Olive oil
1/2 white onion chopped
2 Ears of corn cooked and cut off cob or 1 can of corn drained
1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
1 TBLS honey (optional)
1/2 cup of fresh salsa (if you need a salsa recipe I have previously posted a great one)
Red pepper flakes to taste
Chili pepper to taste
Sea salt to taste
1 package of 8′ tortillas (I used blue corn tortillas)
1 Package of pepper jack cheese
Butter (to grease pan)

What you do:
In a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat and add chopped onion
Cook onions a few minutes until softened then add corn and black beans
Stir well then add honey, if desired, pepper flakes, chili powder and fresh salsa
Cook until the mixture is heated through then set aside

In a different large skillet melt the butter to grease the pan then lay one tortilla down
Sprinkle with cheese( you can do as little or as much as you like)
Add black bean mixture
Cover with another tortilla
Flip quesadilla over and cook other side
Top with additional fresh salsa


You could also wrap the filling and cheese in the tortilla and bake in the oven if a burrito is preferred.
