Veggie Quesadillas

Pin It
Could you consider a quesadilla a sandwich? I think so. And I'm categorizing it that way. But that's not what this post is about. Let's talk about how easy and satisfying quesadillas are. Lets.

My father-in-law asked me after dinner if this was from some recipe. The husband and I chuckled. Do you really need a recipe for this? You can put anything in your quesadilla. You should of course use common sense. You should also select cheeses that melt. Also, don't overstuff them. Or, make your filling too liquidy. Hmm, I guess there are a lot of rules. Maybe a recipe wouldn't be a bad idea. But there's not one here.

I can however tell you what I used for my filling. Black beans. Roasted pasilla peppers. Green onions. Salsa. Salt and pepper. Monterey Jack cheese and a Mexican string cheese. After seeing an episode on quesadillas on America's Test Kitchen, I have also learned about toasting  tortillas twice. It's a good idea, and they get nice and crunchy. So toast each side lightly once, then fill and toast again.
These are delicious. Especially considering how simple they are. No meat, yet they make a satisfying dinner. Enjoy this non-recipe recipe.
