In just 15 minutes you can have the cheesiest and most delicious corn quesadillas. Use Monterrey jack or pepper jack cheese for an added kick!


Select ingredients:


  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onions and sauté until translucent, about 5-8 minutes. When onions are tender, add corn, cumin, chili powder and salt and sauté for 3-5 minutes more until corn is warmed through and tender.
  2. Layer ¼ of the cheese on half of one tortilla, then add ¼ of the vegetables. Fold in half, then melt ¼ of the butter in a skillet over medium heat and place the stuffed tortilla in the pan. Cook just until the bottom of the tortilla begins to brown, about 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
  3. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
  4. Cut each quesadilla into three triangles and top with tomatoes and cilantro if desired. Serve alongside black beans, rice or guacamole.
