  5. 1 large white onion,½ sliced,½ chopped

Corn Salsa:

  1. 2 limes, juiced
  2. 1 cup fresh corn
  3. Kosher salt


  1. In a medium bowl, combine corn, lime juice, chopped red onion and half of the cilantro. Salt to taste and set aside.

  2. In a medium non-stick or cast iron pan, over medium-high heat, brown the plant based  beef.

  3. Add the garlic, sliced red onion, jalapeño, bell pepper and sauté until vegetables are browned on the edges and slightly softened.

  4. Add our Pili Pili spice mix. Salt to taste and remove from heat.

  5. To build the quesadilla, lay a tortilla into an oiled, non-stick or cast iron pan, top with ⅓ cup of cheese, ¼ of the Beyond Beef mixture, ¼ of the corn salsa, and ⅓ cup more cheese. Top with another tortilla and flip once the bottom tortilla is browned  and crisp and the cheese is melted. Brown the other side and remove. (it doesn't always flip without breaking but that is ok)

  6. Slice the Beyond Beef Chipotle Quesadilla into wedges and serve with guacamole or hot sauce.
