Petty Cash's Zucchini Quesadilla with Spicy Salsa Rioja

       
Food and Wine's Version 
As I was working my way through last month’s Food and Wine, I came to an overhead shot of a crispy, toasted tortilla topped with bright red chiles and cilantro leaves.  I was taken with the photo and I was consumed by the recipe. It’s vegetarian so perfect for those meatless meals I am trying to achieve at least once a week.  And I love a great Quesadilla, with the cheese oozing out the sides of the tortilla and filled inside with any number of meaty ingredients like a tinga of puerco, pollo or carne.  This Quesadilla has none of those.  Instead it’s filled with a smoky flavored salsa made with roasted tomatoes, onions and garlic, thin slices of zucchini and as much Monterrey Jack cheese as you can stuff into it.  It’s pure Mexican street food but it was invented in a place that’s about un-Mexican as anywhere in Los Angeles CA. It’s on Beverly Boulevard between Beverly Hills and Hancock Park.

Shrimp, Corn and Queso Quesadillas




Does anyone actually have leftover shrimp? If anything, when you serve these addictive little two-bite size appetizers, you are more likely to run out than have anything other than a tail leftover. But I did have some leftovers and they reminded me of the excellent quesadillas we used to love at a local restaurant called Citrus (Citrus Bar and Grill, 320 Amsterdam Avenue (75th-76th Sts.)212-595-0500 http://www.citrusnyc.com/)
