Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup diced green chiles 4oz can
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby and Montery Jack cheese
  • 2 extra-large flour tortillas
  • Chopped cilantro optional
  • Sour cream optional

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine corn, diced green chilies, salt and onion powder.
  • Preheat large tortilla griddle or skillet over medium heat.
  • Place one tortilla on griddle and top with green chile and corn mixture, spreading evenly.
  • Sprinkle with shredded cheese (and shredded chicken, if using).
  • Top with other tortilla and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, smashing the quesadilla down with a spatula to help the cheese melt. Make sure the tortilla browns but doesn’t burn.
  • Quickly flip over quesadilla with spatula and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Cut into fourths and serve with chopped cilantro and sour cream.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

If you're a meat-lover and want to add some extra protein to your quesadilla, I recommend adding 1/2 cup of shredded chicken and an additional 2 tbsp of shredded cheese to help everything stick together nicely.
