Chicken, Corn and Black Bean Quesadillas

This is adapted from the "Southwestern Egg Rolls" from All amounts are approximate.

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (my home canned chicken works great for this)
3-4 green onions, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed (1 can of drained, canned corn would work)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1-2 T. canned, diced jalapenos
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
6-inch flour tortillas

Saute green onions and red bell pepper in small amount of oil for a few minutes. Add remaining ingredients and warm through.

I use a quesadilla maker I got at Target to make them. Spread a little oil on one side of a tortilla. Spread some of the chicken mixture (I just eyeball it) on the unoiled side of the tortilla. Spread on some of the cheese. Oil one side of another tortilla. Place on top of the chicken/cheese (oil side up). Cook until tortillas are lightly browned and the cheese is melted. This takes two minutes in my quesadilla maker.

Serve with Cilantro Cream Sauce.
