How To Make the Best Cheesy Quesadillas / Beans Veg Quesadillas

Hello Foodies, 
          A Quesadilla is a most loved one of the Mexican dishes, and it is made with tortilla(whole wheat/corn/apf flour flatbread) and filled with cheese, veggies, beans, and spice mix. To make this Mexican dish, you need the ingredients which can be easily found in your kitchen pantry. When I’m feeling too lazy to make a proper meal, I throw together a quesadilla in less than 30 minutes. 

          These quesadillas are packed with bell peppers, mushrooms, beans for protein, and sweetcorn. I used my soft and 100% whole wheat tortillas for some nutritional bonus points and topped with a generous amount of cheese to make it more delicious.

To Prepare the Stuffing for Quesadilla:

  • Top the tortilla with cheese, cooked veggies mixture, and another layer of cheese. 
  • Place another tortilla on top and cook, flipping once, lightly press on the Quesadilla using a spatula, and cook until both sides start to brown and become crisp(Be very careful when flipping the Quesadilla). 
  • Similarly, prepare the remaining Quesadillas.
  • Take the Quesadilla out and using a pizza cutter, cut into half and then quarters.

If you find the above method challenging to cook the Quesadilla, then try this easy way to flip and cook Quesadilla:
  • Place a tortilla on the hot skillet and spread the cheese and filling on half of the tortilla, and the second layer of cheese and fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling and cheese making a semicircle.
  • Using a spatula, lightly press on the Quesadilla and cook until both sides start to brown and become crisp.
  • Take the Quesadilla out and using a pizza cutter, cut into half or three triangular pieces.
  • Quesadilla is ready to serve, serve with salsa and guacamole. Enjoy!!!

My Take:
  • You can use your favorite cheese. You have many options like you can use cheddar, Monterey jack, a Mexican blend, pepper jack, or your favorite melting cheese. 
  • Also, you can add cooked chicken, shrimps, avocado, tomatoes, etc.
