Zucchini and Corn Quesadillas

I love easy recipes. This one for Zucchini and Corn Quesadillas definitely fits the bill. I’ve made Zucchini-Corn Filling for tortillas before, but never quesadillas. (That’s also a super-easy recipe, by the way). You may want to note my trick for making quesadillas. I use TWO flat skillets and rather than try to flip the quesadilla with a spatula (which ALWAYS seems to end up in me ruining the perfection of said quesadilla somehow, I put the second flat skillet on top of the first and flip them upside down then use that one to cook the second side of the quesadilla. I do the same kind of thing to get the quesadilla onto a plate. Works every time, plus it allows you to have two quesadillas cooking at the same time, which expedites the process.

Zucchini and Corn Quesadillas
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus extra for frying
1 small white onion, sliced into 1/8-inch slices
1 medium-sized zucchini, grated
1/3 cup frozen corn kernels
2 teaspoon minced jalapeño chile with seeds
1 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
8 6-inch corn tortillas
lime wedges for garnish

1. Warm 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 5 minutes, or until golden.
2. Stir in zucchini, corn and jalapeño. Cook until zucchini is tender, stirring often.
3. Remove from heat and add cheese and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Place 1 tortilla in nonstick skillet over medium heat. Top with 1/4 zucchini mixture, and set second tortilla on top. Cook until cheese begins to melt, pressing down with a spatula, about 2 minutes.
5. Flip, and cook 2 minutes more, or until browned.
6. Repeat with remaining tortillas and zucchini mixture. Serve hot with lime wedges.
