Flor de Calabaza Quesadillas

These were so easy.

You'll need 24 squash flowers.  Pull off the stems and stamen, rinse, and chop.  Also chop one onion and 3-4 cloves of garlic, and some fresh epazote or cilantro. And you'll need 12 tortillas (I don't care what kind you use- we use three different kinds) and some cheese. 

Heat a little oil, then add the onion and cook till it's soft.  Add the garlic, cilantro, and zucchini flowers and cook for a few minutes. Add salt to taste and set aside.

Heat the first tortilla on one side, then flip it over and top with some cheese and spread on the vegetables.  I used adobera which is a type of queso fresco made in Jalisco.  You could use cheddar, or mozzarella, or really anything that sounds delicious to you.  Crumble or grate it as needed.  Top the vegetables with another tortilla, wait a minute, flip, and cook for another minute or two till the cheese is melted.
