Four steps to make Veggie Quesadillas with Cilantro Cream
Add the cream cheese, cilantro, 1⁄4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1⁄4 teaspoon of the pepper to a medium bowl and stir to combine.
Heat the olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and the remaining 1⁄4 teaspoon salt and 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to a medium bowl.
Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel, spray with nonstick cooking spray, and place over medium heat. Spread 1 tablespoon of the butter on one side of a tortilla and place buttered side down in the hot skillet. Spread 2 tablespoons of the cilantro cream over half of the tortilla, then place 1⁄4 cup cooked vegetables on the other half. Top the vegetable side of the quesadilla with 1⁄4 cup of the cheddar cheese, then fold the tortilla in half, pressing the cilantro cream into the vegetable side. Cook until both sides of the tortilla are browned, about 2 minutes each side. Continue cooking the remaining quesadillas in the same manner.
Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges and serve warm.
