Zucchini and Mango Quesadillas Recipe


Zucchini and Mango Quesadillas Recipe

I was looking around in my kitchen because I wanted to make a quesadilla but I didn't want to include any meat this time, nor I wanted to make it with just cheese, I wanted something different and something I already had on hand.

I found the zucchini, a veggie I keep in my fridge often and I instantly thought about zucchini and cheese quesadillas. But then I saw I had a mango which is not a fruit that I always keep but it was perfect for the occasion! That's how these quesadillas were born.

Keeping tortillas, cheese, avocado and a veggie like zucchinis in stock will help make easy quesadillas like these!

How to make it

Mix the avocado, mango, tomato, onion, lime, cilantro and salt in a small bowl, don't over mix, let it be chunky. Set aside.
