Loved this twist on quesadilla and use of grilled veggies! It was hard to flip a whole double tortilla over without losing the insides, helped to fold one over and make a half quesadilla…

Leftovers were easy to reuse - had it for breakfast the next day and liked it just as much.

Strange filling for quesadillas, but you can't go wrong with cheese and tortillas. Salsa was really good.

Not mad at it. Definitely need larger tortillas size. For a vegetarian meal, it was good. Very seasonal. Don't sleep on the salsa side for this meal.
