Summer Vegetables Quesadillas

Quesadillas are always a big hit at our house. So I thought it would be fun to add some Summer vegetables that are available right now. I love all the flavor that it adds to the quesadillas.


6 whole grain tortillas (make your own whole grain tortillas)
3 T oil (I used grape seed)
1 C chopped zucchini chopped
1 C yellow squash chopped
1/4 C purple onion chopped
2 green onion chopped
1/4 jalapeño chopped
1 C chopped red peppers
juice from 1/2 lime
1/4 C chopped cilantro chopped
1 tomato chopped up
1 C chopped cooked chicken * optional (for non vegetarian version)
1/2 C cheese ( I used mozzarella)
Salt and pepper to taste

chopped tomatoes
cilantro chopped
plain greek yogurt

Directions     Serves 6

1. Heat a skillet on medium heat put in zucchini, yellow squash, onion, green onion and jalapeño. Cook until softened. Stir in the lime juice
2. Toss in the tomatoes,  and optional *chicken and cook until just heated thoroughly. Take off the heat.
3. Place skillet on medium heat. Cook 2 tortillas on both sides until light golden. Place one on the skillet and then distribute 1/3 C of vegetable mixture on to the tortilla. Pour on 3 T cheese. Place another tortilla on top. Cook on both sides. If you have a quesadilla maker or tortilla maker to cook it in that would be easier.
4, Take off the heat once the cheese melts. Garnish with toppings and serve.
