Veggie Quesadillas

This weekend I tried preparing Quesadillas with vegetable stuffing. Quesadillas comes from Mexican cuisine and can be served as a light lunch or breakfast.
The authentic one uses wheat/maize flour tortillas which are easily available in supermarkets all over the world.Here I have changed the recipe a bit by replacing tortillas with fresh soft thin wheat chapatis which I made at home.But the same recipe can be done with tortillas.
This recipe makes 4 Quesadillas.

4 wheat chapatis or flour tortillas
1 medium sized onion
1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn(thawed)
1 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup green bell peppers chopped
1 cup fresh tomatoes chopped 
Oil/butter for toasting the tortillas
Grounded black pepper  to taste.
salt to taste
Other veggies like mushrooms,beans whatever you like can be added in this recipe.

Heat oil in a pan, sauté the onions, corn and green bell peppers until slightly tender. Turn off heat. 
Add tomatoes, salt and pepper and set aside.
Heat a tawa/ griddle to medium heat.
Spread about 1-2 tablespoons of the veggies over one half of the tortilla/chapati. Cover this mixture with grated cheese and fold the tortilla/chapati in half.Now brush both sides with little oil/butter and let it toast for few seconds on tawa/pan until cheese melts and tortilla gets lightly crisp.
Keep an eye on heat to avoid over toasting of tortillas.
Cut them in half and serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

-Children love this food as it got cheese in it.but If you don't like to add cheese then it will still taste divine.
-For some tangy taste you can add lemon juice in the stuffing and sprinkle some chaat masala on Quesadillas while serving them.
