I grew up making quesadillas, the advantage of having a Hispanic mother who is an incredible cook. “Queso” is cheddar in Spanish.
A quesadilla is a warmed tortilla with dissolved cheddar inside. Be that as it may, notwithstanding cheddar, you can put for all intents and purposes anything in a quesadilla.
My top choices are mushrooms, olives, tomatoes, and onions. I don’t cook these fixings first, yet it truly involves taste. You could in the event that you needed to.
Customarily in Mexico quesadillas are made with corn tortillas, not wheat flour tortillas, and a melty white cheddar.
Here in the states however, in light of the fact that we are so near the Sonoran territory of northern Mexico, quesadillas are all the more frequently made with flour tortillas. We like to get the flour tortillas delicately toasted on the grounds that it improves the flavor.
- 6 – 8 flour tortillas (20cm/8″)
- 2 cups (200g) destroyed Monterey Jack cheddar (or other of decision) (Note 1)
- 3/4 cup generally slashed coriander/cilantro
- 1 cup corn parts (solidified defrosted or can depleted)
- ONE Filling of Choice, beneath (hamburger, chicken or vegetable)
QUESADILLA SPICE MIX:
- 1 tsp every onion powder, dried oregano, salt
- 2 tsp every cumin powder, paprika
- 1/4 tsp each dark pepper, cayenne pepper (discretionary)
- Pick ONE FILLING
1/2 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves , minced
1/2 onion , finely hacked
500g/1 lb ground meat/mince
1 little red capsicum/chime peppers , diced
2 tbsp tomato glue
1/4 cup (65 ml) water

- Warmth 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet over high warmth. Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper and taco flavoring. Add the chicken to the skillet and saute over medium-high warmth until done, around 4 moment for each side. Expel from the skillet and bones into 3D squares. Put in a safe spot.
- Include the staying 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet over high warmth. Toss in the onions and peppers and cook until the peppers have a couple of dim dark colored/dark zones, 3 to 4 minutes. Evacuate and put in a safe spot.
- Sizzle 1/2 tablespoon of the spread in a different skillet or iron over medium warmth and lay a flour tortilla in the skillet. At that point fabricate the quesadillas by laying ground cheddar on the base tortilla, and afterward masterminding the chicken and cooked peppers.
- Top with somewhat more ground cheddar and top with a subsequent tortilla.
- At the point when the tortilla is brilliant on the principal side, cautiously flip the quesadilla to the opposite side, including another 1/2 tablespoon spread to the skillet simultaneously. Keep cooking until the subsequent side is brilliant. Rehash with the rest of the tortillas and fillings.
- Cut every quesadilla into wedges and present with Pico de Gallo.
Pico de Gallo:
- Shakers up equivalent amounts of tomatoes and onions. Generally hack the cilantro.
- Presently, cut 1 or 2 jalapenos down the middle. With a spoon, scratch out the seeds. (In the event that you like things zesty, leave in a portion of the white films.) Dice the jalapenos finely; you need a trace of warmth and jalapeno season, however you would prefer not to bring on any flames. Presently dump the four fixings into a bowl.
- Cut the lime down the middle and crush the juice from a large portion of the lime into the bowl. Sprinkle with salt, and mix together until joined. Make certain to taste the pico de gallo and modify the seasonings, including salt or more diced jalapeno if necessary. ENJOY!
