Hearty Quesadillas

We had these tonight and they were oh so good.  There isn't really an actual recipe for this - you really can put in whatever you want.  In fact I threw in some zucchini (since I've got a plethera right now), which I had never done before.
  • Flour tortillas
  • Bell peppers, julienned
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Mozzerella or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • Corn (fresh, canned, or frozen)
  • 1 can black beans
  • Lime juice
  • Olive oil
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Can also add: onions, chicken, meat, zucchini, etc.
Heat oil in pan.  Add bell peppers (and onions and/or zucchini if you choose) and cook until soft.  Add garlic.  Add black beans, corn, lime juice, salt, and cayenne pepper (all to taste).  Simmer until heated through.  

Brush one side of tortilla with olive oil (or use olive oil spray) and place oil-side down on pan.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Put bean mixture on top of cheese.  Top with another oiled tortilla, facing oil-side up.  Cook until browned on each side and cheese has melted.
