These easy tortilla snacks, filled with refried beans, salsa, corn and cheese, satisfy your Tex-Mex cravings with a fraction of the fat and calories of the usual fare.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 cup  fat-free refried beans
2 tablespoons  hot salsa, plus more for dipping
12   6-inch corn tortillas
1 cup  frozen corn, thawed
1/3 cup  chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup  chopped scallions
3/4 cup  finely grated monterey jack cheese (3 ounces)
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.


Combine refried beans and 2 tablespoons salsa in a small bowl.


Place a tortilla directly on a stovetop burner (gas or electric), set at medium, and toast, turning frequently with tongs, until softened, about 30 seconds. Wrap in a kitchen towel to keep warm while you soften the remaining tortillas in the same manner.


Lay 6 of the softened tortillas on the prepared baking sheet. Divide the bean mixture among these tortillas, spreading evenly. Sprinkle each with corn, cilantro and scallions, then cheese. Top with the remaining softened tortillas and press to seal.


Bake until lightly crisped and browned, about 10 minutes. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve hot, with additional salsa for dipping.

We were totally impressed by an easy recipe with a great combination of flavours. Fresh cilantro is essential; canned corn works just fine.
