directions

  • Prepare a medium-hot fire in the grill with a lightly oiled vegetable grill rack in place.
  • Toss bell peppers, jalapenos and onions with olive oil.
  • Grill vegetable mixture, tossing frequently, until tender and lightly charred (about 7 minutes).
  • Cool down grill to low by spreading coals out or reducing flame.
  • Coat one side of 3 of the tortillas with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Spread 1/3 of the veggies on each tortilla.
  • Top tortillas with cheese, place another tortilla on top of each and press firmly together.
  • Spray tops of tortillas with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Grill each quesadilla until cheese is melted and tortilla is lightly toasted (about 4 minutes).
  • Flip and grill other side for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove from grill and keep warm.
  • Repeat with remaining quesadillas (how many you can cook at once is dependant on the size of your grill).
  • Cut warm quesadillas into wedges and serve immediately.

    I scaled this down for 1 person, using 1 tortilla and folding it over. I used a mix of Monterey Jack and cheddar. Yummy! Thanks! Made for the Vegetarian Swap.
