These Vegetable Chipotle Quesadillas make a wonderful dinner idea. These quesadillas are made with smokey chipotle peppers, bell peppers, red onions all nestled in a tortilla with warm Monterey Jack cheese and a traditional flavor that will have your family wanting more.
For a wonderful meal idea, pair these with our Easy Taco Soup for a flavorful meal.
When I was a little girl one of the first things I can remember my grandmother making me was a quesadilla. I was kind of a picky eater when I was little. I used to think of a quesadilla as a Mexican version of a grilled cheese sandwich.
My grandmother used to take great care in making these and she always serve them with her homemade tortillas. She also always serve them with her homemade salsa and a loving heart.
The vegetables are sautéed,
and then combined with the chipotle peppers that really brings out the flavors.
A tortilla sets the stage for the vegetable goodness,
And fresh Monterey Jack Cheese melts the smokey and savory flavors together.
I cut the quesadilla in half and serve with Pico De Gallo and sour cream. It is also great with salsa.
These are so tasty!
