With all your ingredients ready, it’s time to start assembling! Heat ½ tbsp of olive oil in the frying pan over medium-low heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and twirl it around to ensure the bottom is coated in the oil. 

Pan with Olive Oil

Sprinkle 1/4 – 1/3 cup of shredded cheese over the whole tortilla. Add your desired amount of shredded chicken and black beans to one-half of the tortilla. On the other half of the tortilla, add your desired amount of onion, bell peppers, and corn.

Allow the cheese to melt and the tortilla to become crisp on the bottom. Once it’s as melty and crispy as you would like, use a spatula to flip the veggie side on top of the meat and bean side.
