Preparation

Pre-cook the corn: In a microwave-safe container, add the corn and a tablespoon of water. Cook on high for a minute. Remove and let cool.

Heat vegetable oil on medium low in a large skillet. Add one tortilla, and top with half the cheese, corn, jalapenos and finely chopped cilantro, and then, the rest of the cheese. Top immediately with the other tortilla. Cook until the cheese melts, usually 1-3 minutes. Flip carefully over to finish on the other side for a minute or two.

Always easiest to prepare if you have everything ready ahead of time. Here, I'm adding red onions, optional. photo by stevemur stevemur
