OK, I'm going to be one of those annoying people who didn/t follow the recipe; However, I did use grilled zuke and tomatoes in a quesadilla, inspired by this recipe, and they were very wet. The flavor was great, served with guacamole, but the water running out the sides was too much. They did reheat well the next day, because all the water from the veggies was already gone.
