Spinach Squash Quesadillas with Salsa

A successful party always calls for great finger-foods. Imagine a lively chat with your friends and family with a boring food for company! Doesn’t sound much appealing right? And that’s why spicy food with a playful tang is a must-have in parties, picnics, potlucks or casual get-togethers.  And when it comes to flavorsome food, Mexican dishes work best to keep up with the dynamic spirit of such events.

Quesadillas happen to be one of my personal Mexican favorite. Their yum flavor is not the only reason behind my biasness. Making quesadillas never call for any particular ingredients. All you need are the veggies which you feel like eating (and have within your reach!), cheese and tortillas – the rest is a cakewalk. I love its versatility!

This recipe of quesadillas feature spinach and squash as its core ingredients. The crunchy leafy green and the sweet squash works like magic to the dish! They pair perfectly with the spicy kick of the salsa while cheese turns the entire ensemble into an absolute pleasure.  It’s bound to be an instant hit at social occasions.

So grab the ingredients and rush to the kitchen to make your very own home-made quesadillas.
