Tantalizing Tuesday - Confetti Quesadillas
This recipe is, in one word, superb! I got the basic recipe from a Family Fun magazine and have played with it until I found the concoction that is just right for my family. This gets eaten up incredibly fast, and I feel good serving it because its full of veggies and healthy protein.
On a scale of 1 (uck) to 5 (awesome-ness!) I would rate this dish a resounding 5! Its mild enough for my children, but nummy enough for me. And like I said, its healthy!
1 c. frozen corn, defrosted and drained
1 c. shredded zucchini, squeezed dry using paper towels
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1-2 t. taco seasoning
2 c. shredded Mexican cheese
4 large flour tortillas
1) In a large bowl mix together corn, zucchini, cilantro, black beans, and taco seasonings.
2) Mix in cheese.
3) Fill a tortilla halfway full with mixture, and fold tortilla in half, creating a half-circle.
4) Cook on an oiled pan until cheese is melted and tortilla is browned and crispy.
