This quick and easy meal is one of my favorites. You won't find a veggie quesadilla this healthy or tasty if you order it in a restaurant. This recipe will make three burrito-size quesadillas (three servings). You will need either a large skillet or a griddle and a medium-size saucepan.

This is like a quesadilla I had years ago! I loved it then and am enjoying making it for my family now. I tried it with spinach tortillas and pepper jack cheese with great success. Thank you for posting it!
