A Different Kind of Quesadilla
We have a quesadilla maker and it is one of the kitchen gadgets we own that we actually use. Typically, we like to make chicken, onion, and mushroom quesadillas, and Anya will even eat a cheese quesadilla on occasion. A friend gave us some yellow squash that we needed to use, so I decided to make quesadillas out of it. I love squash and I love quesadillas, but I had never made squash quesadillas.
I started with this recipe and altered it based on what I had on hand and the short amount of time I had. Basically, it gave me the idea and I just made it up as I went.
First, I sliced the squash.
Then, I put it in the skillet with some green pepper and onion and sautéed it.
Next, I sprayed a whole wheat tortilla with olive oil spray and put it in the quesadilla maker. I added my sautéed veggies and topped it with some reduced fat cheese and some halved grape tomatoes from the CSA. I also added a Mexican seasoning we like, as well as some hot peppers we had gotten from our CSA.
I put another whole wheat tortilla on the top of this and a few minutes later, I had an amazing squash quesadilla. I used a little light sour cream to cut down on the heat.
Eric wasn’t so sure about it, but even he had to agree that they were pretty good and very healthy!
What do you put on your homemade quesadillas?
