I cooked the veggies up in a tablespoon of Original I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter until tender. I use yellow squash, onion, mushrooms, and green pepper – some of my favorite veggies!

Once the veggies were cooking I mixed in a little shredded cheddar cheese. Since the veggies are warm the cheese melts over all the veggies and helps hold them all together once they are in the quesadilla.

Flour tortillas then get brushed with some melted Original I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter and filled them with the veggie mix, then is cooked until both sides are crisp and golden.

I loved the quesadilla by itself but it was also tasty served up with some salsa. I like the fresh kind you can find in the refrigerated section of your local store. This recipe is gonna be one of my favorite quick lunch recipes now.
