Corn And Cheese Quesadilla

Corn And Cheese Quesadilla - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Quesadilla is a Mexican tortilla based recipe made traditionally with black beans or cheese. It is served usually with salsa, guacamole or sour cream on the side.
I make several versions of quesadillas. I use kidney bean/rajma filling, basic pasta sauce filling, basil and veggie filling and corn and cheese filling which is a very quick one that I make when I don't want to spend lot of time in the kitchen but need something really delicious.

Servings 2


  • 8 Tortillas or Indian chapati
  • 1/4 cup Corn kernels boiled and drained
  • 1/4 cup Onions finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Spring onion greens, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp Coriander finely chopped
  • 1 cup Cheese mozzarella, grated
  • 1 tbsp Oil or butter
  • Salt as per taste


  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the corn, onions, spring onion greens, coriander leaves, cheese and a pinch of salt (salt is needed to just flavor the corn and onions, so add little). Set aside.
  • Heat a tawa/flat pan and add oil/butter. Place a tortilla and roast it on one side. Flip it and add about ¼ cup of cheese-corn filling on it. Place another tortilla on this.
  • Flip the pair and roast it till the cheese melts.
  • Remove and prepare quesadillas with remaining tortillas as well. These make 4 quesadillas.
