Ingredients 

For the quesadillas:

  • 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1 can yellow corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 8 flour tortillas, (about 8 inches)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, (or Mexican cheese blend)

Toppings:

  • Salsa
  • Sour cream
  • Guacamole
  • Cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease a quarter sheet pan.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the shredded chicken, corn, black beans, chili powder and cumin.
  • Line the sheet pan with the tortillas so that half of them hang off the sides.
  • Spread out the chicken mixture evenly onto the tortillas and top with grated cheese.
  • Fold the overhanging tortillas back towards the center and then place a few tortillas on top to cover the filling. Place another sheet pan on top to keep them in place.
  • Bake for 20 minutes then remove the top sheet pan and bake the quesadillas uncovered for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cut into squares or triangles. Serve warm and top with toppings of your choice.
