Edamame, Black Bean & Corn Quesadillas with Lime Crema
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2/3  cup  fat-free sour cream
  • 1  teaspoon  finely shredded lime peel
  • 3  teaspoons  lime juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  honey
  •  Pinch  salt
  • 1  cup  frozen sweet soybeans (edamame), thawed
  • 1/2  cup  canned no-salt-added black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1  cup  frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
  • 1/3  cup  chopped green onions
  • 1  teaspoon  ground cumin
  •  Pinch  ground black pepper
  • 4 8  inches  fat-free flour tortillas
  • 3/4  cup  shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
  • 1/3  cup  snipped fresh cilantro
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  •  Finely shredded lime peel (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. For crema, in a small bowl combine sour cream, the 1 teaspoon lime peel, 2 teaspoons of the lime juice, the honey, and salt.

2. For the crema, in a medium bowl combine soybeans and black beans. Use a potato masher to coarsely mash the beans, leaving some of them whole. Add half of the crema, the corn, green onions, cumin, pepper, and the remaining 1 teaspoon lime juice.

3. Arrange tortillas on a work surface. Sprinkle cheese over half of each tortilla. Top cheese with corn-bean mixture. Sprinkle evenly with cilantro; fold unfilled halves of tortillas over filled halves, making half moon shapes.

4. Arrange quesadillas on prepared baking sheet. Lightly coat tops of quesadillas with cooking spray. Bake about 8 minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut each quesadilla into three wedges. Serve with the remaining crema; if desired, sprinkle with additional lime peel.
