Made some fantastic quesadillas, for the first time. They turned out great and I added my touch to them too.
What was best was they were so fresh and not crispy like some of the store-bought products are. We plan to make them into a meal in the near future…
- 1 medium sweet onion
- 1 medium zucchini (optional)
- 1 medium sweet red pepper
- 1 medium sweet green pepper
- 2 tomatoes (romano or substitute)
- 1 tbspn olive oil
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder (to taste/hotness you like)
- 1 tbspn garlic/pepper spice
- 1 cup of shredded cheese (pick your favourite)
- Option: left over chicken or beef
- side dishes of sour cream, salsa, guacamole (serve with the quesadillas)
- 4-8 large tortillas (10″)
- In a large bowl, combine the chopped (I like to use my mechanical chopper to make them really fine) onion, peppers, tomatoes, olive oil, cumin, chipotle powder, garlic/pepper spice and mix together.
- Using a fry pan, heat the vegetable mixture prepared above, enough to soften the vegetables to your liking (aprox. 5 min).
- On a baking sheet, place down tortillas, add the vegetable mixture (I like to add some meat here too, perhaps chicken or chopped beef) and top off with a generous layer of cheese, then add the top tortilla shell. You can get 4-8 quesadillas, depending upon how much of the vegetable mix you stuff into each, I get 4 full quesadillas from this recipe (8 tortillas total).
- Bake at 350F for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Cut into 6 pieces, serve with sour cream, salsa and guacamole.
