Fun Veggie Main Dish!

I made these last night with some extra potatoes I had from my CSA. The only thing I did differently was add some fresh tomatoes on top of the potato mixture before cooking the quesadilla, otherwise made the recipe as stated. Very tasty and quick.

The whole family loved this recipe. I didn't go as heavy with the jalapenos because my kids are picky about hot stuff, but they couldn't get enough of this and asked me to make again.
