Garden Quesadillas

Quesadillas are the perfect party food for the host or hostess that is concerned about pleasing guests. Simply put out a large variety of fillings and let them put together what looks good to them!
  • Flour tortillas (allow for 2 tortillas per quesadilla)
  • Refried beans
  • Bell peppers, diced (use red, yellow and green for a pretty presentation)
  • Shredded cheese (try to have at least two varieties -- one mild, one sharp -- available)
  • Tomatoes, chopped
  • Onions, diced (have one sweet and one spicy available)
  • Hot peppers, diced (optional)
  • Zucchini, sliced into coins
  • Black beans, rinsed and drained
  • Sweet corn kernels, cooked and drained
  • Olive oil spray
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Allow your guests to assemble their own quesadillas using the fillings you make available. There are only two rules:

  1. The bottom and top layers should consist of a flour tortilla.
  2. Everyone should have fun!
To give your quesadillas a crunchy outside, spray the tops with a little olive oil before you put them in the oven. Place the prepared quesadillas in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Make sure that you encourage your guests to share their creations with each other. You'd be surprised at the new ideas that you'll get!
  • Yields: As many as you want!
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes of cooking -- the assembly process can vary depending on the chef involved!
