Ingredients

  • 1 (8.8 ounce) package UNCLE BEN'S® Ready Rice® Long Grain & Wild

  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed and drained

  • ½ cup frozen sweet corn, thawed

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas

  • ½ cup mild salsa, plus more for serving if desired

Directions

  1. Prepare rice according to package directions.

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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

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