Steve makes a lot of things up when he cooks. He rarely measures things, just adds things as he’s going along. So when I asked him to narrate the quesadillas we had for dinner tonight, this is what he came up with. This is the recipe for one quesadilla. You’ll have to multiply for multiple servings, obviously.
We used two different kinds of peppers. He used canned jalapenos (he was using them up, otherwise he’d use fresh). Jalapenos are too hot for me, so I use mild chilis. That’s the beauty of this recipe… you can use whatever you want. Everything is optional except the tortillas and cheese! Best of all, Josh was able to make his own quesadilla. Anytime we have “hands-on dinner” he loves it.
- 2 flour tortillas
- chicken or beef, precooked
- tomato, chopped
- onion, chopped
- peppers, chopped
- cheese, shredded (mozz & cheddar)
- guacamole & sour cream to taste
- cilantro, optional, to taste
Preheat oven to about 325. Pile stuff on first tortilla, like a pizza. Top with other tortilla. Bake till cheese is melty. Eat. Repeat, ’cause one is never enough.
