Actually this would make a great appetizer if you where having a party, it would even work for dinner with a nice salad (remember the Lime Vinaigrette from the other day?)
I varied this recipe from one I found on “”. Another great resource for recipes.

Quesadilla with Lime-Cilantro Sour Cream
Olive Oil Spray
1 small green pepper, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
3/4 cups corn (fresh or frozen)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 whole wheat tortillas
1 16oz can refried fat-free beans
1/2 cup low-fat Mexican cheese mix (or cheddar cheese would be ok too…make sure its low- fat!)
Lime-Cilantro Sour Cream (see below)

Spray the olive oil spray in a large skillet, heat over low-medium heat. Saute green pepper and onion until soft about 5 minutes or until soft. Add corn, cumin, salt & pepper. Mix together, set aside in bowl, add cilantro.

Working with one tortilla at a time, spread with refried beans, place in skillet bean side up, top with onion-green pepper mix, cover with cheese. (remember, you’ll be making a second one, so divide ingredients evenly!) Top with another tortilla, cook until cheese melts about 4 minutes. Flip to toast other side. Slice into 8 wedges. Repeat with other tortillas. Serve with Lime-Cilantro
Sour Cream.

Lime-Cilantro Sour Cream
1/2 cup low-fat or fat free sour cream (remember heart healthy!)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 lime, juiced
Mix all ingredients until well combined.

Serves: 16 wedges

    sounds good. I make mine in the oven, then the filling doesn't fall out when I flip it!
