Quesadilla pronounced as 'kesa dia' is a Mexican snack or fast food item, Which means 'little cheese things'. It is mostly stuffed with only cheese or veggies and cheese inside a corn tortialls(flatbread).
This kind of snack is great to do with leftover stir-frys or curries. I make this more often as our evening snack sometimes with corn and beans or sometimes with eggplants. This time around I used Green bell peppers/capsicums, roasted red peppers and Onions and Natural Pepper-jack cheese.
Very simple, spicy and satisfying snack.
Pepper jack cheese- 3 slices
Vegetables : Onion, green bell pepper- 1 each cut length wise
Roasted red bell pepper- 1 (used store brought)
Spices : Cumin/jeera powder, red chilli powder and turmeric - 1tsp each
Salt to taste, Lime juice - 1 tsp.
- Heat a pan when hot add oil, and cut veggies saute it until it is soft. Then add spices and salt mix well, adjust the spice and salt. Squeeze fresh lime juice. Keep aside.
- Heat a griddle on meduim-high heat, when hot put one tortialla and worm one side, turn to other side, now add veggie mixture and little or more cheese on top of the mixture.
- Fold on one side, leave on the griddle until cheese melts, let it cool a bit.
- Cut into wedges and serve warm with hot sauce.
