*If you do not have corn tortillas, use flour. Or make Nachos by placing all of the ingredients on top of tortilla chips and heating in the oven at 350 for 5-10 minutes

*You can sub for 2c. black beans for a vegetarian option, or 1 c. black bean, 1 c. corn.

*You can use anything from Monterery cheese, goat cheese, or cheddar. For a vegan/dairy free option, use soy cheese, or apple slices for a more decadently sweet quesadilla.
