Corn Capsicum Quesedilla

Share with friends and family

Corn capsicum Quesedillas are perfect to serve as quick after school snack or for an early dinner.  The gooey cheese and the crunch from the sweet corn and capsicums make every bite delectable. 

Make sure that these Quesedillas are served hot as soon as you prepare so that the filling and the tortillas don't loose the crispness and the texture

Mexican flavors are very close to our Indian spices and flavoring agents, so ideally you don't even need to hunt for special ingredients to make these melt in mouth Corn Quesedillas. 

There are ready made tortillas available in the market these days which can be used to make these Quesedillas or even the Indian Flat bread (Fulkas) can also be used as the base for making. 

You  can experiment with various flavors when preparing the filling and try to make it as healthy as you want. The amount of cheese can also be as per your preference. In today's corn capsicum Quesedilla I have kept the filling very simple and have used diced mozzarella cheese to get the gooey effect . 

Today's recipe makes use of ready made multigrain tortillas and for the filling I have used sweet corn , green bell pepper (capsicum) and red bell pepper.
