This recipe came from Wild Oats. It was great! I struggle with quesadillas, so I made them more like taco's, melting the cheese onto the taco shell first.

Very nice! My husband (the meat eater) asked to have them again. I let the mixture sit for 30 mins or so once I mixed it together, and I think that helped mellow & combine the flavors. Also made them with just one tortilla, folded, which helped make them easier to eat. Thanks for a yummy recipe!

Yummy! We used fresh sweet corn and I threw in a chopped tomato as well. Very good as quesadillas, though we were short on tortillas so made nachos out the rest. A very versatile recipe, and I'm looking forward to making it again in the wintertime with frozen corn and peppers from the garden :)

I've made this recipe four or five times now and I really love it. I use it as a taco/burrito filling instead of quesadillas because flipping them was just too hard! This is one of the few vegetarian recipes that I have been able to feed my family with no complaint, but everyone really enjoys it. Thanks, prattandpratt
