Sautéed bell peppers are a classic ingredient in veggie quesadillas. In this recipe, to celebrate the bounty of summer, we’re upgrading them to vibrant tinkerbell peppers. Named for their small size, these delectable mini bell peppers pair perfectly with creamy Monterey Jack cheese, layered inside crispy, golden tortillas. To round out the dish, we’re topping the quesadillas with fried eggs and a fresh salsa of sweet cherry tomatoes and cilantro. A dip of Mexican crema brightened up with lime zest brings a welcome, cooling touch.

Prepare the ingredients & make the lime crema:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the lime crema:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Quarter the tomatoes and place in a medium bowl. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the peppers; remove and discard any seeds, keeping the peppers intact. Cut the peppers into ¼-inch-thick rings. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Grate the cheese. Using a peeler, remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest (or use a zester). Quarter the lime. In a bowl, combine the crema and lime zest; season with salt and pepper to taste.
