Let’s check out this recipe for Corn And Sweet Pepper Quesadillas today.
Coming Up With This Recipe:
If you have been reading this blog for some time, then you must have come to know by now that my daughter is the mind behind every recipe that I post on Easy Baby Meals.
Recently I had a conversation about quesadillas with her. She usually doesn’t prefer eating quesadillas. I asked her the reason behind it.
She said she doesn’t like the cooked vegetables in it. And it gets too soggy. So I said, let’s make a quesadilla without cooked vegetables and which is not soggy at all. She gave me a thumbs up.
Ingredients In Corn And Sweet Pepper Quesadillas:
As I was brainstorming about the ingredients to add in this version of quesadillas, I wanted to do with the August Seasonal Produce. I started with Corn. Onions were out of the question since it had to be raw ingredients. And raw onions won’t go well with my missy.
I came across these Sweet Peppers in the market and thought corn and sweet peppers would be a perfect combination.
Making these Quesadillas:
Once I rounded up with my two essential ingredients. I started building a recipe around it. (My favorite part of recipe development)
I have added garlic salt and roasted cumin powder for the aromatics and flavor. And used sharp cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese for the gooey cheesy goodness.
I used small soft taco shells and roasted them a bit on a skillet, to give them a little crunch. Also, it won’t make the quesadillas soggy.
Assembling these babies and cooking them in a skillet, just enough to let the cheese melt. And they are ready to enjoy.
Let’s get cooking:
I started with roasting the mini taco shells in a skillet. Once these were done, I kept them aside and switched to making the filling.
In a bowl, I added corn kernels. (Pro Tip- you can use roasted corn kernels for added flavor) Or boiled corn kernels will work as well.
Followed that with chopped sweet peppers, roasted cumin powder, garlic salt, and black pepper to taste. A squeeze of lime juice can do wonders, but it is totally optional. Mix this well. You can add some chopped cilantro as well. (Again optional)
To assemble each quesadilla, I started with one roasted taco shell. Layered it with a little bit of mild tomato salsa. (Make sure you are not adding too much).
Now add the corn and sweet pepper mixture, and top it with shredded sharp cheddar and mozzarella. Cover this with another roasted taco shell.
Follow the above steps for the rest of the quesadillas and cook these on medium flame in a skillet till the cheese is melted.
Once done, serve these with your child’s favorite dip. Now isn’t this simple.Check out this recipe for Corn And Sweet Pepper Quesadillas. #easyrecipe #weekenightmeal Click To Tweet
Variations for this recipe:
Corn and sweet pepper can act as a base filling. You can add meat to it, or any other vegetables according to your preference.
For the grown-up version, you can add cajun season for some heat or green chilies. Here’s what I like to do.
I roast normal tortillas on a grill and add roasted corn and roasted sweet peppers along with onions for the grown-up version. It gives a delicious rustic flair to these quesadillas.
