Is there anything more delicious than a quesadilla? Answer: yes! One that’s jam-packed with all kinds of flavorful, roasted veggies and topped with a fresh pico de gallo. And of course, tons of melty mozzarella cheese. On the side, there’s a bright salad of peppery arugula and lime. This dish is hard to beat.
Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and thinly slice shallot. Finely chop a few slices until you have 2 TBSP. Core, deseed, and thinly slice bell pepper. Trim and halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut crosswise into half-moons.
Toss together sliced shallot, bell pepper, zucchini, oregano, and a drizzle of olive oil on a foil-lined baking sheet (divide between 2 foil-lined sheets for 4 servings). Season with salt and pepper. Roast until softened, 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven; transfer veggies to a medium bowl. Discard foil. Preheat broiler to high or oven to 500 degrees.
Dice tomato. Finely chop cilantro. Halve lime. In a small bowl, combine chopped shallot, tomato, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper.
In a second small bowl, combine mayonnaise and chipotle powder (start with a pinch, taste, and add more from there if you like). Add water, 1 tsp at a time, until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency.
Brush one side of each tortilla with a drizzle of olive oil. Place half the tortillas on baking sheet used for veggies (for 4 servings, divide between 2 baking sheets), oiled sides down, and spread with chipotle mayo. Top with mozzarella and a few veggies (save some veggies for the salad). Top with remaining tortillas, oiled sides up.
Broil or bake quesadillas, flipping halfway through, until tortillas are crispy and cheese has melted, 1-2 minutes per side (in batches for 4 servings). (TIP: Watch carefully for any burning.) In a large bowl, toss arugula with remaining veggies, a squeeze of lime juice, a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Cut quesadillas into triangles. Top with pico de gallo. Serve salad on the side.
