Meatless Fridays

We LOVE Mexican food and could probably eat it daily! This week's meatless recipe will surely satisfy any cravings you have. It's cheesy, spicy, and sweet goodness on a plate...and don't forget the sour cream and salsa!
This week's Meatless Friday meal is:

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

2 teaspoons olive oil
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (10 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup salsa
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes - optional
butter for browning tortillas
flour tortillas - try making your own with this super simple and delish recipe!
shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in beans and corn, then add sugar, salsa, and pepper flakes; mix well. Cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Melt 2 teaspoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the skillet, sprinkle evenly with cheese, then top with some of the bean mixture. Place another tortilla on top, cook until golden, then flip and cook on the other side. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
