Simple Recipe: Squash blossom quesadillas

Squash Blossom Quesadillas

Squash blossoms have been a surprise hit with us this summer. I’ve made them stuffed with goat cheese and sautéd as a side dish. But this has been by far the easiest, tastiest treatment. Just spread goat cheese on tortillas, fan out the squash blossoms, sprinkle some cheddar and jack then top it all with another tortilla. I just put them in a pan to melt the cheeses together and they were perfect. Grilling would probably work wonderfully.

    Where are you getting the squash blossoms? Chavez market? I have plenty of pumpkin blossoms…would they work?

      I think pumpkin blossoms would work. I got my first batch from the Los altos farmer’s market. $2 for about 8. My last batch I got from I love that service. Great stuff from local farmers – delivered!

  • Oh man, I love squash blossoms. We get them from our garden sometimes, and can usually find them at our farmer’s markets and specialty grocery stores. I love them stuffed with goat cheese (or any random sauces/pestos I have hanging out in the fridge/pantry) and fried!

      Hi Kim,

      I don’t know why I hesitated to try squash blossoms – so tasty. I put them in a quesadilla because I was too lazy to do the whole piping thing to stuff them. So these have all the cheezy goodness without the labor.
      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting.

      • I often don’t even pipe…a little spoon does the trick if the blossoms are big enough. I like the quesadilla idea though!
