Vegi quesadilla

This recipe is an inspiration from showmethecurry. I have tried making quesadilla but it never turned out right. I realized today that I was under cooking my tortilla's. When you are cooking your tortilla make sure both sides are well done. The tortilla should have dark spots in it. Also you need eat this hot otherwise they tend to become soggy. This is a fun recipe for kids too...

Ingredients for stuffing:
- 1 small onion
- 2 bell peppers
- 1 small tomato
- 1-2 green chili
- 1 pack of frozen spinach - Defrost it and squeeze the water out
- 1 tsp oil

Ingredients for quesadilla
- few tortillas - I used the store bought once
- 1 cup of shredded cheese - Cheddar or monterey jack cheese

Method to make the stuffing:

1. Finely chop all the vegetables.
2. In a pan add oil and once the oil is heated add the onions. Fry for a minute then add chillies and salt. After about 30 seconds add the tomatoes, and peppers. Cook them till they are soft.
3. Finally add the spinach and cook till all the water evaporates. The stuffing needs to be a little dry otherwise the quesadilla becomes soggy.

Method to make the tortilla:

1. In a skillet/tawa pour a few drops of oil. Add the tortilla and cook till they become golden brown on one side. Flip it over and add the cheese and the stuffing. Do not over stuff it.
2. Add the second tortilla and carefully flip it over. Let it cook untill the other side becomes golden brown. Remove it once the cheese has completely melted.

Serve it hot with black bean soup or salsa



I love quesadillas and can snack on them anytime.
