Cheese & Vegetables Quesadillas

My interest in cooking is making me try different recipes everyday. My husband has to bear the brunt always but he enjoys it the most.. (I think so).  I just yearn for the compliments that he gives me after every dish.  He is my best Critic.
So one evening wanted to experiment some thing with Tortilla wrap that I purchased from a local Grocery store.
After thinking a lot I came up with this superb recipe of Quesadillas which is a Mexican dish made with cheese and vegetables. You can even add Ur favourite Chicken into it.
Instead of using the ready made wrap you can make the same at home also.

2 Tortillas
Olive Oil to Roast the Quesadillas
