Step 1

In large bowl, toss together corn, jalapeños, olives, shrimp, cumin, scallions, lime zest and cheese until combined. Evenly divide corn mixture among tortillas, spreading on half of tortilla (about ⅔ cup each). Fold tortillas in half.

Step 2

Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush grill grates with oil. Grill tortillas, flipping once, until tortillas are golden brown and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Cut tortillas into wedges and serve with Pico de Gallo and avocado.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

Use up Leftover Corn

Put those leftover kernels of sweet GOYA® Low Sodium Golden Corn to good use! Some ideas: Stir into Pico de Gallo, sprinkle over salads, garnish gazpacho, or mix with GOYA® Beans, olive oil and spices for a quick bean salad.
