“A Pillsbury recipe. Very good indeed. I used corn right off the cob, green onions from the garden and added the sour cream to the filling before I made the quesadilla. I did use just a little more cumin and chill powder than called for but I like those two flavors together. I also spray the outside of my quesadillas with cooking spray so they get nice and crispy.”
