  1. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil. Cook and stir onions and red bell pepper until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add corn and serrano pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute more.

  5. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the hash filling and 1 1/2 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese on each tortilla. Fold tortillas in half. Fry in vegetable oil until quesadillas are golden and crispy, about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  6. Mix cilantro and onions together in a small bowl.
  7. Serve the quesadillas with salsa, sour cream, onions, and cilantro. Enjoy!
