Use whatever veggies you like. This is just what I had available. Anaheim pepper, Broccoli, Carrots, tomato, Green Bell Pepper, Jalapeño, and Onion. I would prefer yellow or orange bell peppers, and the jalapeño gives it a little kick. Dice and slice and add them all to your pan with a tablespoon or two of butter. You could use olive Oil too, but I think the butter gives it better flavor. I have made this a few times and Sometimes I saute the onions and carrot first, and then all everything else, but you really only need to cook it all for a few minutes. You want the veggies to be tender, but not soggy. Oh and don't put the tomato in yet that comes later.
I like to heat my tortillas up on the griddle for a minute or two then flip them over and add the cheese so it can start melting right away on a hot tortilla
Next add your veggies. THe veggies above made enough for two, so only add half. I slice the tomato up thin and add it to the top like a pizza. then start heating the top half of my quesadilla and add the cheese to melt to it.
Once the cheese is melted on th e second tortilla, flip it over on top of the veggies and allow a minute or two for the cheese to stick to the veggies. Mashing it down a little helps. Then carefully flip it over to brown and crisp up the tortilla a little.Slice and serve. I use a regular knife for slicing, the pizza cutter tends to make a mess of it. Now If only had some homemade salsa, or pico de gallo. some guacamole, and some sour cream...
