Expert Tips

Calabacita is a Mexican vegetable mixture of corn, zucchini, onion and chiles.

Quesadillas are flour tortillas that are stacked or folded over and filled with cheese, meat or refried beans. Our version is made with two tortillas sandwiching the filling. Usually served as appetizers, quesadillas are broiled or fried.

Keep cooked quesadillas warm in a 250°F. oven while preparing the rest of the recipe.
