Grilled Vegetable & Cheese Quesadillas with Mango Salsa

These grilled vegetable and cheese quesadillas are loaded with grilled peppers, zucchini, and corn, then tossed together with a mix of cheeses plus a delicious mango salsa. Everything is then stuffed inside tortillas, pan-fried, and cooked until crisp and golden. Crispy on the outside, melty and cheesy on the inside. Kind of like a vegetable grilled cheese…and yes, totally delicious!
