    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: Prep of vegetables can be done, placed in bowls and refrigerated. It is a healthy refreshing meal. I started eating quesadillas a few years ago. I am hooked on the variety of ingredients that can be encased between tortillas and so so satisfying. Enjoy. I love the refreshing cruch of the jicama and red pepper.

      This was YUMMY! The hicama and black beans were my favorite. I'm not a fan of cumin so used taco seasoning only.

      I liked the variety of ingredients, but wasn't sure what I was heating the oven after I spread everything onto the tortillas, I put them in the oven long enough for the cheese to melt & lightly crisp up. I wasn't sure how long I had it in the oven for. I like the lime addition. I would also like to try this with cilantro sometime
