Spinach,Sweetcorn & Mushroom Quesadillas


A quesadilla ,originated from Mexico is a flour or corn tortilla filled with a savory mixture containing cheese and other ingredients, then folded in half to form a half-moon shape,these cheesy veggies stuffed or meat stuffed quesadillas are quite famous in Mexico. The word quesadilla derives from the Spanish word, queso meaning cheese...Quesadillas have been adapted to many different styles. In America, many restaurants serve them as appetizers, after adding their own twist to them.Some interesting filling goes for goat cheese, black beans, spinach, zucchini, tofu, and many other different veggies.Even there are dessert quesadillas. These are made with ingredients like chocolate, butterscotch, caramel with different varieties of fruit.After filling, the quesadillas are folded and then cooked either by boiling or frying. Once the cheese gets melted, the quesadillas are ready to serve..Usually the cooked quesadillas are served as wedges or small slices.

Our yesterday's lunch was this wonderful looking spinach,sweetcorn and mushroom quesadillas, its was quite filling,healthy simply cheesy and marvellous obviously we had a wonderful lunch..Serve this quesadillas with some salads or salsas, kids will definitely love these wonderful Mexican food without any hesitation..Am sending these healthy and delicious quesadillas goes to Ivy's Creative Concoctions - Cooking With Olive oil & to Priya's A Veggie for a month - Spinach guest hosted by Priya.
