If you need a new idea for zucchini, add this Zucchini Quesadilla recipe to your collection. Quesadillas are so easy to put together and customize.

Use a different kind of squash if you don’t have zucchini. Use Cheddar instead of Jack. Leave the bacon out if you’re going for vegetarian. Everything is negotiable.

Spring is here, and I recently saw good-looking corn on the cob for sale at my local grocer.

YES! Time for Zucchini Quesadillas with Corn.

If you’re not familiar with street corn, it’s highly spiced and seasoned corn-on-a-stick that is often sold at festivals or fairs. The seasoning in this recipe takes these quesadillas to the next level.

Kitchen secrets for cutting quesadillas:

Kitchen scissors or a pizza cutter will make it easy to divide your quesadilla into wedges for neater consumption. If you have neither, use a sharp knife.

If you don’t have a sharp knife or even if you do, consider eating these when camping where it doesn’t matter so much what your food looks like or what you look like when eating it.

Looks delish! I've always used a pizza cutter for quesadillas.

My pizza cutter is one of my favorite utensils and I'm guessing yours, too. Good for cutting smallish sandwiches, dough for rolls, noodles or dumplings, etc.

Mmmm....Paula those look good! We often do quesadillas on one tortilla...put the filling on and fold in half. You don't get as messy this way when camping, lol!

Thanks for mentioning the fold-in-half technique. Also good if you just want to use/eat one tortilla.
