According to a University of California, Davis study, many canned fruits and vegetables have equal, or more nutrients than their fresh or frozen counterparts.

I want to share a recipe that we enjoy at my house that uses 2 canned goods.

This is an easy meal or appetizer to throw together.  Personally, I love the sweet and salty combination of the corn and sausages.

All you have to do is remove the casings from the sausage and brown them in bite-size pieces.

Place two tortillas on a large sheet pan and top them with cooked sausage, corn, and green chiles.

I use Delmonte canned corn.  Delmonte has Fiesta Corn and Southwest Corn with Poblano and Red Peppers which would be great as well.

Dave likes Old El Paso chopped Green Chiles in his quesadilla.

I can find the corn and green chiles at Market Basket, Hannaford’s, Price Chopper, or Stop & Shop.
