Veggie Quesadilla – Easy Mexican Recipe

Ingredients to make Veggie Quesadilla – Easy Mexican Recipe

  • 6 multigrain/whole wheat chapattis or flour/wheat tortillas
  • butter/oil for roasting the quesadillas:
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 capsicum/bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 2 green chillies/jalapenos, chopped
  • 2 to 3 cloves of garlic, grated or finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • ½ teaspoon of dried oregano or mixed herbs
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • To serve:
  • Chopped green onions and coriander leaves for garnishing
  • Fresh guacamole
  • Homemade salsa
  • Sour cream or thick yogurt

How to make Veggie Quesadilla – Easy Mexican Recipe

  1. To make the filling: Heat oil in a pan. Add the onion, garlic and green chilies and saute for a few minutes till the onions are soft.
  2. Add the dry spices (oregano, red chilli flakes, cumin etc.) and fry for a few seconds.
  3. Stir in the vegetables and salt to taste and stir fry on high for a few minutes till the vegetables are slightly cooked but still have the crunch. Remove from heat and keep aside.
  4. To make the quesadillas: Heat a tava or skillet on low heat. Add some butter or oil on the skillet. Place a chapatti or tortilla. When slightly roasted, flip it over.
  5. Sprinkle some cheese all over the tortilla (combination of both cheeses). Top with vegetable filling and more cheese. Spread evenly over the whole tortilla.
  6. Top with another tortilla and press gently. Once the bottom is slightly roasted, flip the whole quesadilla over gently (take care not to spill the filling) to roast the other side with additional butter or oil.
  7. Fry both sides till the cheese has completely melted (press gently) and the quesadilla is crisp and light golden. Cut into triangles or wedges with a knife or pizza cutter and serve hot with salsa and your favorite toppings!!

My Tip:

Any vegetable of your choice can be used. I have sometimes used zucchini, bell pepper, spinach, mushrooms etc. Use a cheese that melts easily. You can make quesadilla using only one tortilla/chapatti too. Just fill one half of the tortilla with vegetables and cheese, flip the other half of the tortilla over the filling and then roast or toast this half-moon shaped quesadilla on both sides. People who eat non-vegetarian can add cooked meat or chicken and even cooked eggs along with the cheese. Veggie Quesadillas are Mexican tortillas filled with your favorite vegetables, oozing with melting cheese in every bite!!! They are great as a finger food or appetizer and perfect as a healthy quick meal.
