To make the salsa, combine the corn, red pepper, onion, cilantro, jalapeno, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix in the lime juice and set aside. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Set it over medium-high heat. When the pan is very hot, add a tortilla. Heat the tortilla for about 30 seconds. Cover half of the tortilla with half of the beans and cheese and a small handful of the salsa. Fold the empty side over the filling. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until golden brown and cheese is melted. Repeat for the second tortilla. To serve, cut each quesadilla in half. Place 1 half on each of 4 plates. Top with a quarter of the salsa and sour cream (if using). Serve immediately.
