Pasilla Pepper Quesidillas (vegetarian)

4 medium flour tortillas
2 pounds monteray jack cheese shredded
2 medium tomatoes diced
3 Pasilla peppers sliced into 1/2 strips
1/3 white onion halved & sliced
2 cloves garlic minced
1 can mild diced green chilis
1/2 cup vegetable stock
1 tsp salt
2 tsp olive oil

In large pan heat oil over medium heat. Add in onions, peppers & tomatoes. Mix and cook for about 3 minutes. Add in stock, diced chilis & garlic. Increase heat to medium high and boil until most of the liquid is gone & peppers are soft.

Heat a non stick pan over medium low heat. I prefer to spray the outside of my tortilla with a little bit of vegetable spray it crisps up better. Add cheese to one half, place 1/4 of the mixture on the cheese, top with more cheese and then fold. Cook until brown and flip. Make sure the liquid is mostly cooked out so you don't get soggy quesidillas.

Chicken would be a nice addition to this for meat eaters. We ate it just like that, no sour cream or anything needed. I prefer Monteray Jack cheese to mozzarella for quesidillas it adds another layer of flavor. Also if you are using chicken you could sub in chicken stock.

I love quesadillas, specifically because of the versatility of the ingredient possibilities. I could eat them almost every day with some different filling plus they lend themselves well to either vegetarian or non-vegetarian diets. I've submitted several varieties to cooking contests in the past as well. They are one of my favorite meals.
