      These were DELICIOUS! I loved the flavors, they were very Southwest. I left the jalapenos and the cheese separate, and added that as I made each one (I made full "pancake" quesadillas and cut them like pizzas, and added jalapenos only to those who like it HOT!) I also used butter on the tortillas instead of oil as I think it gives a better flavor. I did find an excess of bean-type filling and some cheese...this may call for extra tortillas!!!!

      Very good! No oil needed. You can toast the tortillas (wheat are just as good) in a dry sauce pan.

      Didn't have zucchini on hand, so used chopped, seeded tomatoes. Delish!
