Was not fully prepared for just how good this was going to be! The corn blends nicely with the meat, cheeses and salsa (I left the onion out - made this on the fly and didn't have any). You will definitely want to pan fry it so you get that yummy browning - it takes just a tiny bit of oil rubbed onto a nonstick pan to accomplish that. ETA: Have now made this multiple times, once ran out of roast beef for the last quesadilla, so used goat cheese for the meat (ie 3 cheeses!) and that was even more spectacular. The goat cheese gave it an awesome flavor and went really well with the corn and green salsa. This is going into my best of the year recipebook!
