Directions

Heat the oil in a 8-inch skillet over medium heat until hot.

Add the onions, stirring often, and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until the onions are soft and browned.

Stir in the garlic, chipotle pepper with sauce, black bean and corn, and cook for about 3 minutes until heated through.

Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Remove from the heat.

Place the flour tortillas on a cutting board or a flat working surface.

Arrange half amount of black bean-corn filling onto one side of each tortilla.

Spread it evenly to cover half of the tortilla, and leave about ½-inch space between the filling and the edges.

Sprinkle equal amount of scallions and cheddar cheese on top of black bean-corn filling.

Fold the other half of each tortilla over. Press to close.

Heat a large nonstick skillet at medium heat.

Place two assembled quesadillas side by side into the skillet.

Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the cheese melts and the bottom side starts to become brown.

Carefully flip the quesadillas to the other side with a large spatula, and continue to cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until golden and brown, and cheese completely melts.

Place on serving plates, and cut into wedges.

Serve warm with salsa if needed.
