Directions:

  1. Place the sour cream and scallions in separate serving dishes, and set aside.
  2. Lay a tortilla on a flat surface, and spread 2 tablespoons of the cheese over the bottom half only of the tortilla. Top the cheese with 2 tablespoons of the roasted pepper, 2 tablespoons of the corn, and 2 more tablespoons of the cheese. Fold the top half of the tortilla over to enclose the filling. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 4 filled tortillas.
  3. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray, and arrange the folded tortillas on the sheets in a single layer. Spray the tops lightly with the cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 425°F for 5 minutes. Turn the quesadillas over, and bake for 4 additional minutes, or until the tortillas are lightly browned and the cheese is melted.
  5. To serve, place each quesadilla on a cutting board, and cut into 4 wedges. Arrange the wedges on a serving platter, and serve hot, accompanied by the dishes of sour cream and scallions.
