Recipes for Free: Pinto Bean and Corn Quesadillas w/Udi’s Plain Tortillas

By Calvin Eaton @glutenfreechef5

Pinto Bean & Corn QuesadillasI threw these yummy Pinto Bean & Corn Quesadillas together one day last week when it was hot and I was too tired to make anything else. I simply refried some of the pinto beans I had made a week prior but you can substitute another can bean variety of your choice.

udi's tortillasAdd corn, sweet peppers, tomato, and really anything else you like and spoon the mixture into one these wonderful Udi’s Plain Tortillas and you have a meal in less than 10 minutes. Each tortilla is only 120 calories so those watching carbs and calories can breathe a sigh of relief.

Thanks to Udi’s I can safely and deliciously eat quesadillas and soft tacos again! Yay
