  2. Hi Hital and Anuja,
    I love the recipe and i am planning to do it on my sons birthday party . my question is what i have to do to keep them crispy for a long time( since the dinner may start at 8 pm and i have finish cooking it by 4 pm. )

    and i am planning to add mushroom, carrots, potatoes, capsicum and spinach. so can i add all the above vegetables

    It will be great if you help me with my questions.


    1. Hi Pavi,
      I think I answered your question on FaceBook but incase you did not get it:

      Unfortunately, for Quesadillas it is best cooked last min

      You can, however, try this a couple of days ahead and see how it works:
      make the Quesadillas ahead and then put them in a single in the oven (on broil) and heat for just a couple of minutes each side and allow them to crisp up and serve imm.

      Try this out BEFORE the party and see how it works out – this is a suggestion, we have never tried it but think it will work.

      Happy Birthday to your son and Happy Cooking!

  3. Came out really well, thank you! This is such a quick weekday meal. I used a little ricotta cheese as a spread. For the veggies/filling : bell peppers, onions, cabbage, carrot,zuccini, spinach and some home-made tomato salsa. Yumm! The husband loved it and so did I.
