Vegetable Quesadillas

It’s time for those delicious summer vegetable to start hitting our shelves.  Zucchini,  yellow squash and bell peppers are some of my favorites!  Luckily, I was given this recipe by one of my mentors back when I was in college.  This recipe is inexpensive, delicious, and easy to make (no need to turn on that oven in the middle of a hot summer day).  So, it quickly became one of my favorite things to make for dinner.  I think you’ll enjoy it, too!

Here are a few of the ingredients you will need (in my excitement to make these, I forgot to take a picture of the mushrooms, cheese and tortillas):

 After slicing all of the vegetables, sauté them with the Tabasco sauce, salt, and pepper.

Build your quesadillas (see recipe below); cook over medium heat.  I was busy trying to take pictures and let these get “extra” brown!  Watch them closely... they just take a few minutes on each side!
