To make the filling
Heat olive oil in a pan.
Add red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, zucchini and broccoli. Add salt and cook till 3-4 minutes till all the vegetables are tender and cooked well. Switch off the flame and sprinkle dry herbs and leave the filling to cool a bit at a room temperature.
Heat a griddle and keep a flour tortilla on it. Spoon 1 tbsp of tomato sauce on the tortilla and spread some cheddar cheese on one half of the tortilla. Top with the vegetable filling that we made and add some jalapenos and mozzarella cheese.
Fold the tortilla into half to form a half moon shape and brush butter on the tortilla and turn it over. Brush some more butter on other side as well to get crispy and buttery quesadillas.
Press the tortilla with the back of a ladle and cook till it is slightly browned and the mozarella cheese is melted. Once the quesadillas are done cut into quarters and garnish with some fresh basil and serve it hot with sour cream and Mexican Salsa.
