Cook's Hideout: Grilled Vegetable Quesadilla

Grilled Vegetable Quesadilla

Blogging Marathon# 31: Week 1/ Day 1
Theme: Mexican Cuisine
Dish: Grilled Vegetable Quesadilla
We are starting BM# 31 today and Valli had very interesting themes, all starting with the letter 'M'. So for the first week, I picked my most favorite theme, 'Mexican Cuisine'. Mexican dishes feature at least once or twice a week in our household. We all love beans, cheese and spicy food, so Mexican cuisine ranks right next to Indian for us.
So for the next 3 days, I'm going to post some of my family favorites. For the first day, I have quesadillas which are basically Mexican version of grilled cheese sandwich. My cheese loving son loves these. Add some grilled/ roasted veggies or beans and you have yourself a filling meal.
I grilled some veggies on my indoor grill and used them in the quesadilla. Roasted or sauteed veggies can be used instead. Any good melting cheese would work here.
Ingredients: To make 4 Quesadillas
Tortillas - 4
Veggies of Choice - 4-5 cups, chopped (I used peppers, zucchini, onions)
Cheese - ½cup, grated (I used cheddar, but monterey jack or pepperjack will taste great too)
Salt & Pepper - to taste


  • Grill the veggies on indoor or outdoor grill until charred and tender. Set aside.
  • Put some grilled veggies on the lower half of tortilla and top itwith grated cheese. Fold the top half onto the cheese and press lightly.
  • Grease the grill and cook the quesadilla until grill marks form and the cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Repeat with the remaining tortillas and veggies.
The most important part of a Mexican meal are the condiments that are served along with the main meal, this is purely in my opinion :-) I love me some (or a LOT of) sour cream and some guacamole. I also made some refreshing Watermelon salsa (recipe to follow). Enjoy!!
Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked up for BM# 31.
