Hard for me to rate this fairly since I made a bunch of changes. But what I will say is that I LOVED the Mushrooms and Zucchini. I never would have thought of it! As for changes - I left out the bell pepper (bf doesn't like them) Used green onions (what I had) Cut the chili powder in half (I found the chili powder taste to strong. Not -hot- strong, just chili powdery strong)I used pepper jack cheese (didn't measure, just grated over) And I mixed the cilantro with about 1 tbsp sour cream per quesadilla (I stacked instead of folded). In the end I actually had to go back and make a second batch of 3 for BF's lunch today. Will make these again. Thanks!
