I am excited to share with you this delicious quesadilla made with local, seasonal fresh vegetables, gooey cheese and a Mission Organics® Tortilla!
One of my favorite parts of the summer is all of the fresh fruit and vegetables. The colors are so bright and vibrant! I also love visiting my local Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning. The selection of produce and baked goods is wonderful and I also like to support my local farmers.
I went this past Saturday and was so impressed with the selection. They had yellow squash, zucchini, all different colors of bell peppers and tomatoes, Jersey corn on the cob and so much more. I typically make a huge salad with all of my farmer’s market finds, but this week I decided to get a little more creative. I had a package of Mission Organics Flour Tortillas at my house and decided to make easy, cheesy quesadillas.
Farmer’s Market vegetables are so beautiful, aren’t they? Just look at these gorgeous colors!
I love all of the colors of the heirloom tomatoes. Just saying, New Jersey has the most delicious tomatoes EVER. Case closed.
The beauty of these quesadillas, besides being delicious is that they are so simple to make!
I only use one tortilla per quesadilla. I know there are many different ways to make these, but I think this is the easiest way.
Mission Organics Flour Tortillas are USDA organic certified and non-GMO project verified, which is very important to me. They don’t contain any artificial preservatives and don’t add artificial colors or flavors. I try to eat mostly local and organic foods because I care about the ingredients and products that I feed my family. Mission Organics Flour Tortillas are for those who believe that the quality and flavor of their tortilla is just as important as what goes into them. Added bonus that they are so soft and taste delicious!
I made these quesadillas for my kids and they all devoured them. Just keeping it real, one complained that their wasn’t enough cheese and the another one said he wanted the vegetables sliced smaller. Ever since I wrote my cookbooks and asked for their opinions they love to critique my recipes! Ha! Oh well, they still loved them and ate them up!
