Delicious! The corn is cooked perfectly in the quesadilla, and the smoked paprika just makes it have this nice smoky taste.
Loved these! Made as written (but doubled recipe and used corn tortillas). There was enough zing from the smoked paprika that I was surprised but would not use the Pepper Jack as some others did. A doubled recipe served us two along with the Black Bean & mango salad recommended.
I don't fry my quesadillas. I use two tortillas, one on top, one on the bottom with the filing in between--just like a sandwich.
Then I just lay them in a hot skillet (no oil) and cook until golden on one side, and flip them over to cook the other side. The cheese melts and glues the quesadilla together.
This was an easy recipe to whip up in a hurry, and it got great reviews. I wanted more zip, so I used pepper jack cheese. I pulled the quesadillas together and brought them to a friend's house to cook them. I used frozen corn kernels (thawed and blotted dry in paper towels) and it turned out just fine. The smokiness of the paprika was lovely. I might try chipotle chili powder next time for more heat.
Super delicious! I used Pepper Jack cheese instead of plain Monterey Jack and it was excellent. I'm sure that the serving size is such because of nutritional guidelines, but I ended up having to double the recipe because one tortilla folded in half each was not enough for a meal. Definitely double the recipe if you're hungry! :)
