1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 large flour tortillas 

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese 

1 cup frozen roasted corn, thawed 

1/2 cup crumbled Cojita

1/2 small avocado, diced 

2 tablespoons chopped jarred jalapenos 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 

1 teaspoon ancho chile powder 

1/4 cup jarred salsa, for serving 

1/4 cup jarred salsa verde, for serving 

Tortilla chips, for serving 


  1. Place a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Spread half of the mayonnaise on one of the tortillas and place in the hot skillet mayonnaise-side down.
  3. Top with half of the Monterey Jack. Add the corn, Cojita, avocado, jalapenos and cilantro. Sprinkle over the ancho chile powder and remaining Monterey Jack.
