  • Mix rice, shredded cheese, beans, corn, green onions, together in a bowl.

  • Place a quarter of the mixture on one side of each tortilla. Top with about 2 tablespoons of mild salsa. Gently fold each tortilla in half.

  • Spray a small saute pan with non-stick cooking spray; set over medium-high heat.

  • Place one quesadilla in saute pan. Cook until lightly golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Spray the pan with additional oil, as needed, to cook the next 3 quesadillas.

  • Let quesadillas cool slightly and cut in half. Serve with additional mild salsa, if desired.

OMG...these were so simple and so delicious. Added a few chopped up pickled jalapenos to the filling mix because we like things spicy. A winning meatless lunch or dinner! Thanks for a great recipe Holiday Baker! Read More

Flavourful? Pretty bland I thought. Needs some seasoning avocado and done on lower heat so as not to blacken the tortillas at all. You don't need a recipe for this. Skip it. Read More

These were very good. The recipe is great as it stands. I used medium salsa and added some hot sauce. I will definitely make these again and the only ingredient change I would make is to use yellow onion instead of green onion. I was a little lazy so I just mixed in the 1/2 c salsa with the other ingredients instead of putting on each one--worked fine. My tortillas were a little smaller than called for so I was able to make 6 that were stuffed with filling. I served with additional sour cream and salsa. Read More

I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because it is a great to eat as written but also a great base to build upon. I easily added a sprinkle of taco seasoning and tomatillos. You can also add in more fresh vegetables such as avocado plus sour cream and hot sauce! Read More

As a base recipe this was very good but as I started mixing things together I was not thrilled with the rice to beans ratio. I ended up doubling every ingredient except the rice and it was great! The kids loved it and asked for seconds. The seasoning from the rice itself gives this a lot of flavor without being at all spicy which works for wussy me and my kids! You could definitely kick up the heat of that's what you like. This is one of those recipes that is a great guideline but can be customized to whatever you like. Read More
