Kitchen-Sink Quesadillas

Ingredients

1 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained
1 11-ounce can corn kernels, drained
3/4 cup salsa, drained
1 8-count package large flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Juice of 1 to 2 limes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 head romaine lettuce, sliced 1 inch thick

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the beans, corn, and salsa.
  3. Place 4 tortillas on a parchment- or foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with half the cheese. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the black bean mixture on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and sandwich with the remaining tortillas.
  4. Bake until the cheese has melted, 5 to 7 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the onion, cilantro, salt, pepper, lime juice, and oil. Add the lettuce and toss.
  6. Transfer the quesadillas to a cutting board. Cut each into 6 wedges. Serve with the salad.

Serves 4.

I make quesadillas similar to this. Another way to heat them and get them nice a crispy is in a non-stick skillet with PAM. Very nice and browned and no butter or oil needed.

These sounds delish. I should make more quesadillas because they are a really good weeknight meal.

I'm surprised by the name too. Thought everything would be in there (except the kitchen sink, hence the name). But these still look really good!
