  1. In large bowl, stir together corn, beans, onion, Cuban seasoning, cilantro and garlic. Set aside.
  2. Place 6 tortillas on work surface. Equally divide bean/corn mixture among tortillas. Evenly divide cheese and sprinkle over bean/corn mixture on tortillas. Top each with second tortilla.
  3. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place 1 assembled quesadilla into hot skillet; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until golden. Carefully flip quesadilla; cook other side 1 to 2 minutes or until golden and cheese is melted.
  4. Cut quesadilla in half or into quarters to serve. Repeat with remaining assembled quesadillas.

Expert Tips

  • Recipe can be easily doubled or tripled.
  • If you prefer not to make all six quesadillas at one time, place half of the mixture into a sealable container and refrigerate until you’re ready to cook.
  • Serve with sliced avocado and salsa, if desired.
