How to make Quesadillas de Flor de Calabaza
In a medium skillet over medium heat, add the oil and wait for it to shimmer. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir In the roasted bell pepper, and sauté for 2 minutes. Throw in the zucchini blossoms and sauté for 10 minutes. Add the grated tomato as well as the cilantro and salt, cover and cook for 10 minutes.
In another pan, heat up the corn tortillas on both sides for 2-3 minutes each. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the zucchini blossoms mixture on each tortilla. Sprinkle cheese on each and form each tortilla into a taco. Cook each quesadilla, once folded, about 1-2 minutes on each side before serving.
- The main cheese to use are Oaxaca or asadero cheese, but any white cheese that easily melts will do.
- Feel free to throw in a minced jalapeno with the garlic if you like some extra spice
