Bobby Flay's Hummus and Zucchini Quesadillas

We really enjoyed this, as you can see from my messy baby :).  Having the hummus and the bean relish made for a different kind of quesadilla, and it is always fun to have something different around here.  Plus, we really like hummus.  We found this recipe in Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill cookbook, and each quesadilla was 621 calories.  Noah and I gave this a 9, and Owen and Aaron gave it an 8.  Here's what to do:


1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
6 cloves garlic
1/2 t ancho chili powder
2 T fresh lemon juice
2 T tahini
2 T olive oil
3 T cilantro
salt and pepper


6 flour tortillas
6 oz cheddar cheese
1/2 c shredded zucchini
8 oz goat cheese
salt and pepper
Dipping Sauce or Relish to serve

Combine all the hummus ingredients in a food processor, and combine well, adding water if needed.  Refrigerate until ready to use.

Spread hummus on three of the tortillas, spread the goat cheese, the cheddar and the zucchini among all the three tortillas, then season to taste, then top with the second tortilla.  Cook in the oven or on the stove top until the cheeses are melted and the tortillas are crispy.  Serve with dip or relish of choice.

  1. I love the baby the best. This sounds really good. In the picture it looks like you served the quesadillas with beans and avocado. Is that right? Love mom
