Two Simple Tips for Making a Perfect Cheese Quesadilla {TMH}
  • Tortillas
  • Shredded Mild Cheddar, Monteray Jack Cheese or Colby Jack Cheese
  • Butter
  1. Use an electric skillet or a large skillet on your stove top
  2. Heat the skillet to medium or medium high heat
  3. Use a cold stick of butter and rub it on one side of the tortilla. Put the buttered side of the tortilla down on the skillet.
  4. Spread a generous amount of shredded cheese on the tortilla. Make sure to spread cheese all the way to edges, go a little skimpy in the center because when the cheese melts it will naturally go towards the center.
  5. Butter one side of a second tortilla, place the none buttered side down on the cheese.
  6. Check bottom tortilla to see how it is cooking. Once it is browning nicely carefully flip the quesadilla over and allow to cook on the other side until nicely browned again.
  7. Use a pizza cutter to slice it into 6 or 8 pieces and serve warm
  8. Serve with re-fried beans or guacamole.
