2

Heat an iron skillet to medium on your stove top.

3

In a small pot, cook the frozen corn using instruction on the bag. Drain and set aside.

4

Cut the green pepper into small strips, and chop the spinach leaves.

5

Set a small frying pan to medium heat. Once heated, add the olive oil and green pepper strips. Salt liberally and sauté.

*NOTE - You want these to be slightly over salted to balance the other ingredients.

6

Build your quesadilla by spreading the goat cheese over the tortilla, completely covering half and having some on the second side. Then add the corn, sautéed peppers, pickled red onions and chopped spinach. The ingredients list is for two quesadillas, but you can adjust the amounts of each ingredient to your liking.

7

Fold the quesadilla and add it to the warm skillet. Cook for a few minutes and then flip it to cook the other side. Each side should only take a few minutes until it starts to brown.

8

After both sides are cooked, remove the quesadilla and cut into triangles for serving.
