Santa Fe Veggie Quesadillas

Santa Fe Veggie Quesadillas


"I've made this quick and colorful appetizer for many great dinner parties. Serve with fresh salsa, guacamole or sour cream as dipping sauces--or by itself. Works great on a large scale as well. Thawed and drained frozen veggies may be substituted for canned. Look for the combination of corn, red pepper and black beans in the grocery store's frozen food section."

  1. Prepare a lightly oiled large skillet over medium heat. Place the tortilla in the skillet and flip it once to ensure an even coating of oil on both sides.
  2. Allow the tortilla to heat on one side for 1 minute. Beginning at the center of the tortilla, evenly spread the cheese blend until the tortilla's entire surface is covered. Top the cheese with corn, red bell pepper, black beans and green onion. When the cheese is completely melted, carefully slide the tortilla from the pan onto a cutting board. Slice into 8 wedges and serve warm.

It was very quick and easy to make - only about 5 minutes per quesadilla - and you could customize the fillings!

Excellent! I also added 1/2 cup of shredded garlic jack cheese, made a mixture of guacamole, sour cream, and salsa, and also served the condiments separate. I just prefer the mixture, but know...

I added cilantro to this recipe, which was a very tasty addition. This is a great way to cut down on the cheese in the typical quesadilla. (I used less cheese than was called for.) Very fresh ...

Simple, tasty, and so easy to make. We cut the tortillas in half, then folded each half over while it was on the griddle so it was more like a true quesadilla. I served them with salsa and sou...

I liked how quick it was to make, but actually when I followed the recipe exactly, it tasted very blend. I suggest you use salt and pepper, or serve it with your favorite salsa. I used a little ...
