‘Like a Can of Corn’ Tortilla

Joseph’s Corn and Black Bean Quesadillas are wonderfully cheesy, somewhat spicy with a hint of sweet. You can’t go wrong with the combination of sweet corn, creamy black beans with gentle chili kick and melted cheese toasted in tortillas. And you won’t go wrong with Joseph’s Reduced Carb, Heart-Friendly Tortilla.
