Step 1

Combine beans, corn, cheese, ¼ cup cilantro, and ¼ cup salsa in a bowl.
Place tortillas on a large baking sheet or platter.
Spread filling on half of each tortilla (a little more than ⅓ cup on each).
Fold tortillas in half, pressing to flatten.
Add oil to large frying pan and brown tortillas on medium-low heat until cheese is melted, flipping once, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
Or grill on T-fal OptiGrill on the sandwich setting.
Repeat until all tortillas are golden brown and cheese is melted.
Slice in halves and top with remaining fresh salsa, cilantro, avocado and any other toppings of your choice.
