Quesadillas de Flor de Calabaza (Zucchini Blossom Quesadillas)

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"These quesadillas de flor de calabaza are very popular in Mexico. The bacon grease gives the quesadillas another level of tastiness plus they crisp up beautifully. If bacon grease is unavailable, feel free to use lard, oil, or butter."

  1. Melt bacon grease in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Place tortillas in the skillet. Top each tortilla with 1 slice of Manchego cheese and 3 zucchini blossoms. Fold tortillas in half.
  2. Cook until tortillas are lightly browned and cheese starts to melt, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn and cook until the other side is crispy, lightly browned, and the cheese has melted, 1 more minute.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Mozzarella cheese can be used in place of Manchego cheese.
  • Any type of oil or butter can be used in place of bacon grease. Any skillet can be used in place of the cast iron skillet.
