Squash Blossom Quesadilla - Farmer's Market Inspired!

Squash Blossom Quesadilla Ingredients
I have eaten almost exclusively organic for about 6 years but I am trying to step up my game, especially when I am craving familiar foods that I grew up with, my comfort foods.  The Mexican grilled cheese sandwich or "Quesadilla" is one of those foods.  Here I used a quality New Zealand sharp cheddar cheese and add squash blossoms to increase my healthy vegetable intake and a roasted yellow chili instead of a traditional jalapeno, anaheim or serrano chili.

I am just going to let the photographs "BE" the recipe with the exception of brushing the corn tortillas with olive oil after softening them on a griddle along with roasting the chilis at the same time.

Serve with avocado, salsa is nice too!
