Black bean and corn Quesadillas. Yum!!
Ingredients: (I don't measure, so just judge according to your taste)
8 inch flour tortilla (I use whole wheat. The taste is richer than the white)
1 can black beans, drained
1 can corn, drained and rinsed (or small bag of frozen corn)
Salsa (I use half a medium size jar)
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
Generous pinch of brown sugar (I use Sugar in the Raw)
Cheese (I use Kraft shredded Mexican cheese blend)
1 tablespoon butter
Olive oil (enough to lightly coat the pan)
Pour olive oil in skillet and heat. Add onions and saute. Stir in black
beans, corn, salsa, and sugar. Cook until thoroughly heated, then
remove from pan and put mixture aside. Melt butter in a large skillet
(medium heat), then place one tortilla atop melted butter. Sprinkle with
cheese. Top black bean mixture evenly on cheese. Place another tortilla
on top. Make sure to press the edges down with the spatula you're going
to use to turn it. Let tortilla cook for a about two minutes on each
side. Cut into rectangles and voila! Yummy!
