These quesadillas are easy and pack a big punch of flavor. Ham gives the quesadilla a smokey taste and you get a pop of sweetness from the corn and the apple. Sriracha brings heat to the creamy sauce. If you don't like spicy, definitely leave the Sriracha out. Everything mixed together creates a really delicious quesadilla.
