So what are quesadillas?

They are flat breads (also known as flour tortillas) filled with savory mixture and fried on each side. The flat bread is sometimes folded and filled with fillings to your liking usually with cheese, heated through or usually pan grilled. 

The word quesadilla is derived from the Spanish word Quesada or Queso meaning 'cheese'. But who cares what it really means, it's very super tasty and won't mind eating them all the time.

You can use a Nonstick Tortilla Pan Griddle Cast Iron Grill to make this yummy stuff.

  • Flour Tortillas - warm and softened 
  • Green and Red bell peppers
  • 1/2 a can Red Kidney beans (Though beans weren't used here because, hey I ran out of beans, that's life.)
  • 5 minced cloves garlic - add more if you love garlic
  • 1 red Spanish onions sliced thin or diced
  • 1 diced tomato
  • 1 sliced mushroom of any kind as the meat replacement 
  • 1 cup shredded Spanish Queso a.k.a cheese meant for Quesadillas (Optional if you are vegan)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste 
  • a bit of oil (coconut oil was used here)
  • Optional (chopped cilantro)
  • Red Pepper flakes for a little heat

In a nice large saute pan, put a bit of oil to stir-fry the garlic and the onion. Stir until soft. Then add the mushrooms, the red bell peppers and sprinkle some red pepper flakes.

NOTE: Loving the Calphalon Classic Nonstick Saute Pan with Cover. It's like a wok with enough room to stir things in.

Add the red beans, diced tomato to the pan and stir some more. Add the cilantro last if using this herb.

Now for the fun part. Get your favorite griddle like the Nonstick Tortilla Pan Griddle Cast Iron Grill and put a bit of oil on it.

Lay a couple of flour tortillas on the griddle. Scoop some of the stir-fried veggies on each tortillas being careful not to spill them over the edges.

Put a spoonful of the cheese and top it with another tortilla. Close the lid of your tortilla griddle and leave it like that until the cheese melts. Peek if you must.

What's more to love? The George Foreman Electric Quesadilla Maker in Red. It has a lid that presses the quesadillas and grill them perfectly on both sides like a no-brainer. There's no flipping! Get this baby on Amazon, it'll give your quesadilla making a whole new meaning.

Serve this vegetarian quesadilla piping hot! Don't forget some pickles and homemade air-fried potatoes.
