Spicy Vegetable Quesadillas

From Mexican Fiesta p. 246
Makes 8 servings

1 small zucchini, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teas. chili powder
1/2 teas. ground cumin
8 (6-in.) flour tortillas
1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat until hot. Add zucchini, pepper, onion, garlic, chili powder, and cumin; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove veggies and set aside; wipe skillet clean.
2. Spoon vegetable mixture evenly over half of each tortilla. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and cilantro. Fold each tortilla in half.
3. Spray same skillet with cooking spray. Add tortillas and heat 1 to 2 minutes per side over medium heat or until lightly browned. Cut into thirds before serving.

*I just make a small amount and make 1 or 2 quesas for lunch... yum. I don't use cilantro unless I happen to have it on hand. This is perfect for a few little leftover veggies.
