Spicy Quesadilla

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Derf2440

Very, Very good, if you can find the sundried tomato tortillas, they add a wonderful taste, as compared to the plain ones. We pass the salsa also, with the sour cream. More heat can be added if desired and the recipe can be scaled down to one or two.

Guess what Derf! I HAD sun-dried tortillas, as you can see from the photos! This was a wonderful recipe and all because they are baked to finish them off! I made this exactly as posted, but with one small addition - I used a little yellow pepper as well as the red. These were gorgeous, and I am going to serve them to another zaar member, Lindseylcw, who is visiting me this weekend, for her first meal of the holiday! This reicpe is a keeper for me and very much enjoyed. Merci Derf! Made for the Hot and Spicy event in the Photos Forum. FT:-)
