If you like, add grilled chicken, shrimp or other lean meats to this recipe.
Heat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, combine the beans, zucchini, corn, red onion, cheese, cilantro, cumin, salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce.
Heat a large, nonstick skillet to medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Place one tortilla in the pan to warm. Place half the bean mixture on one side of the tortilla and fold over to cover. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes then flip the quesadilla and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the other tortilla.
Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until cheese has completely melted. Cut each quesadilla into 4 even slices and serve with your choice of condiments.
