Black Refried Beans & Corn Quesadillas

I recently found myself hungry at 8:45 p.m. and didn't really have any food laying around for dinner. My husband and I ran to the grocery store to pick up some quick items for dinner. We wanted two completely different meals, but I grabbed some whole wheat tortillas, a can of refried beans and an avocado for some quesadillas. Without further ado, here's the recipe that took less than ten minutes to make!
