Spicy Corn Quesadillas

READY IN: 52mins
Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

I collect quesadilla recipes and this is a great meatless one. It is the best with corn cut fresh from the cob.

I did not use the grated carrot, otherwise followed the recipe with the exception of adding a thin layer of sour cream to the inside of the tortilla prior to putting together. I like (if I don't have fresh corn) using canned no salt added vaccuum packed corn, it tastes the freshest and is slightly sweet too. Thanks for sharing!
