Raw veggies, fresh lime juice, golden buttery tortillas ~ these Corn & Zucchini Quesadillas were absolutely delicious.

I love corn in pretty much anything but in combo with the zucchini, jalapeno & cilantro ~ it was just perfect.  The corn & zucchini mixture can be made in advance & kept in the fridge until dinner making this an even easier weeknight meal.

Corn & Zucchini Quesadillas
Recipe type: Main Dish
Serves: 4
  • 1 can (11 ounces) extra sweet corn niblets
  • 1 medium zucchini, quartered & thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded & diced
  • juice from 2 small limes
  • about 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  1. To make the Zucchini Salsa: Add the corn kernels to a medium bowl. Add the zucchini, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice, & olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss well to combine. Cover with a lid & refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Brush one side of all tortillas with a small amount of butter; lay a tortilla, buttered side down, in a preheated skillet. Place a quarter of the filling on each tortilla, and sprinkle with a quarter of the cheese. Place the remaining tortillas on top, buttered side up; press down gently with a spatula to seal.
  3. Saute until cheese has melted and tortillas are golden brown, turning once. Remove from the skillet & let cool slightly. To serve, slice each quesadilla into wedges.

    Ooooooh, how very interesting! :) I’m going to have to try this, but I HATE raw zucchini so I think I might thinly slice it & grill it before adding it to the filling. Either way, great combination & a fresh take on quesadillas! Thank you so much for linking up with me this week at Tasty Tuesdays! I’ve pinned this & shared it with my followers! Please be sure to stop back by the party and check out some of the other links!
