Sweet Red Pepper & Mushroom Quesadillas

"I only "discovered" Mexican food about a year ago....almost wish I had been born south of the border!! These are easy to make & quite tasty; they can be served as an appetizer or an entre with a crisp, green salad."

  1. This is wonderful. I wouldn't change a thing in this quesadilla. It is easy to prepare and a great use for all the wonderful veggies. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Wonderful! I left off the tomatoes because around here, the tomatoes in the salsa were enough. This is very easy to vary with whatever veggies are around. I usually fry in a pan with oil, but gained the idea here to bake them on a stone. Both sides turn crispy and wonderful!
  3. Good but I have to say, I really prefer cooking in a pan over oven, but overall, great flavor!!
  4. Yum! Really loved this for a change of pace quesadilla. It was yummy, meaty, healthy and easy. Thanks for the great recipe country lady...
  5. Loved it! We had company and everyone enjoyed it! Excellent flavor combination!


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!!

I've participated in many contests & events here on Zaar but this is the first banner that I've posted.
