Veggie Quesadillas


Oh, delicious! I found these beauties at The Pioneer Woman Cooks, and we tried them a few nights ago. Simple really - we fried sliced mushrooms, red pepper in strips, sliced onions, sliced zucchini and little bit of fresh spinach.

This, plus cheese, went into pre-fried tortillas, and then into the oven. Yum!

One admission though: I think I prefer to fill the tortillas, then pan-fry them in a dry pan with no butter or oil. I just don't like the extra crispiness they get with the added fat - and for once, since I prefer the lower-fat option, I think I'll stick with it.

I saw her suggestion too and it only really makes sense if you want to make a whole bunch at once in the oven. Like you I prefer the direct heat from a skillet.

Now these look wonderful, and easy. I'll have to try them myself sans cheese for a vegan option.

I did a chicken, caramelized onion, and mushroom version a couple of months ago. I must admit, that I do love a good quesadilla. Yours look especially delicious in the picture.
