    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    Nice flavors and textures for a quesadilla, with a nice jolt of spiciness from the chiles. Works out ok with flour tortillas as well as corn. From The Border Cookbook, posted for ZWT 3, Mexico.

      Made this for lunch yesterday and it's excellent. The Sweet Corn Festival is in full swing up here so of course I used fresh. Did leave out the mushrooms as DH refuses to eat fungus! Thanks Patti for sharing!

      A late night at work and I needed something that was quick and easy but still interesting. This fit the bill in aces. I love the idea of using ingredients which are common to me but in a whole new way. The vegetable mixture-relish is so good; with the mushrooms absorbing the spice from the chipotles and the corn providing a crisp and sweet contrast. It would make a great filling for an omelet as well. My version was reduced fat as I used cooking spray to cook the relish and the quesadilla itself as well as a reduced fat jack cheese. Thanks!
