Vegetarian Quesadilla

April 28th 2010

Continuing the Tex-Mex series, this is quick, easy and tasty. You can customize the veggies per liking or just use plain cheese and make a cheese quesadilla. Without further adieu, here is the recipe. 

Difficulty level : Easy

Time: 15 min (prep time), 10 min (making time)

  • Store bought flour tortillas
  • Chopped Veggies ( I used red peppers and onions) - one can add spinach, green peppers, mushrooms,spring onions etc.
  • 1/2 or 1/4 cup Mexican Blend cheese (vary per taste)
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Butter (to spread)
  • Taco bell sauce (fire, mild, hot)- optional
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Guacamole (optional)
 Method de Preparation
  1. Chop the onions and peppers finely, drizzle some oil and salt and grill in the top rack of the oven on broil setting (low). Watch constantly as it can burn easily. Maybe about  5 min. Keep aside.
  2. Slightly grease one side of the flour tortilla with butter and heat on the pan, repeat on both sides.
  3. When slightly browning on one side, layer with cheese and then veggies and maybe one more layer of cheese, depending on your cholesterol level and then fold in a semi-circle and grill well, till cheese melts and both sides brown well.
  4. Remove and cut in triangles and serve with sour cream, guacamole and salsa.
Chef's Tip: The next time you eat at taco bell, get some extras of their sauces and keep in the pantry and use when you make your quesadillas and burritos for the authentic Tex-Mex taste :D

How do you manage to flip it? It has been a challenge for me always

@ Sri: if you use a wide spatula and keep the whole turning process will work.
@ GP: Awesome that you tried it! Kudos to you for taking the initiative.
