<p>If you have a bumper crop of zucchini or bought a bunch at the farmers market, save the blossoms! They have a delicate flavor and can be used in a variety of recipes, like these quesadillas. Sargento® Authentic Mexican Shredded Cheese adds great flavor to the filling.</p>

  • 4 Tbsp. Onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
  • 1 Garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 1/2 Jalapeño pepper, minced

  2. Heat the tortillas on both sides until they are soft and pliable, fold in half. Divide the cheese and filling among
    the 8 tortillas, place on a skillet over medium heat until the tortilla is golden, flip and cook until the other side of the tortilla is golden, and the cheese is completely melted. Remove from heat.
