Quesadilla Pockets

So, my friend Jo was having a crappy day today so I decided to make her & her fella some dinner in an effort to cheer her up.  This is what we had.  It was really delicious & very filling.

Recipe from Heart Healthy Living
Yields 6 servings
286 calories per serving

1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1.5 c frozen whole kernal corn, thawed
1 can pinto beans
1.5 c reduced-fat shredded Mexican cheese
1/2 c salsa
6 8 in tortillas

Preheat oven to 450.
Coat a large baking pan with cooking spray & set aside.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
Add corn, beans, 1 c of cheese, salsa, onion powder, & chili powder.
Cook & stir until heated through & cheese has melted.

To assemble the quesidillas, divide bean mixture among tortillas, spreading evenly over one half of each tortilla.
Fold over & press down gently.  
Place on baking sheet & sprinkle remaining cheese over top.

Bake for 10 minutes.
