Make 'salsa': place drained tomatoes in large bowl; mash into smaller pieces with fork. Mix in corn, beans, onion, cilantro, garlic powder, salt, cumin, red pepper and lime juice.

Assemble quesadillas by sprinkling 1/3 cup cheese over half of each tortilla; top each with 1/4 cup 'salsa' (reserve remaining). Fold each tortilla in half over filling; set aside.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook quesadillas 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until cheese melts and tortilla is lightly browned.

Cut each quesadilla into 3 wedges. Serve each with remaining 'salsa'. Add a lime wedge and sour cream, if desired.

Cook's Tips: Monterey Jack cheese may be substituted for Chihuahua cheese, a Mexican melting cheese.
