- 8 medium-sized flour tortillas
- 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 1 cup black beans, cooked and drained

For the Hot Honey Dipping Sauce:
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons hot sauce (adjust to taste)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon lime juice
- Pinch of salt
Step 1: Roast the Vegetables
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
Toss the diced butternut squash and corn kernels with olive oil, salt, and pepper on a baking sheet.
Roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.
Add honey, hot sauce, lime juice, and a pinch of salt.
Stir until well combined and heated through. Set aside.
Step 3: Assemble the Quesadillas
Lay out four tortillas on a clean surface.
Sprinkle a portion of shredded Monterey Jack cheese on each tortilla.
Add a layer of roasted butternut squash, corn, black beans, and chopped cilantro.
Top with more cheese and place a second tortilla on top.
Step 4: Cook the Quesadillas
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and coat with cooking spray.
Place one quesadilla in the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are golden brown.
Repeat for the remaining quesadillas.

Let the quesadillas cool for a minute before slicing them into wedges.
