Default Black Bean Quesadillas

Black Bean Quesadillas

1 onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and mashed
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 (10 ounce) package frozen corn
12 (12 inch) flour FF tortillas
1 cup shredded LF Cheddar cheese

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and saute the onions and garlic until soft. Mix in beans, bell peppers, tomatoes and corn; cook until heated through.
Place a tortilla on a plate or flat surface, sprinkle some cheese over the entire tortilla. Spoon some of the bean and vegetable mixture over half of cheese-topped torilla. Fold in half.
Heat a large, dru skillet over medium-high heat. Place quesadillas in the skillet and heat just enough to brown both sides and melt the cheese.
